“Amelie has no boyfriend. She’s tried once or twice, but the results were a let down. Instead, she cultivates a taste for small pleasures: dipping her hand into sacks of grain, cracking creme brulee with a teaspoon, and skipping stones at St. Martin’s canal.”
—Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Le Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain
Amethyst is a site-specific installation with images and sound. Slowly dissolving slides reminisce the process of decay. The automated slideshow is projected in a dimly lit but richly decorated room, the visual style of the imagery referring to fashion photography. Koen Hauser created this work on the occasion of Salon/1, by whom he was invited to show his work in Museum van Loon during the Amsterdam Fashion Week 2010. website Koen Hauser
We love to start a new year with a new design! This is a new addition to our jewelry collection which includes Pomegranate themed pendants and earrings. Have a peek at the work in progress - the preliminary sketches, wax models, a silver cast, and a partially assembled ring. The juicy pomegranate seeds - natural red garnet oval cabochons - complete the delicious look.
