This is a Necklace. It was designed by Bruce Metcalf. We acquired it in 2016. Its medium is carved and painted maple, gold-plated brass; painted wood, plexiglass (case). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Metcalf’s focus in this work is on sensuous, abstracted forms of flowers and decorative shapes that make quite unmistakable references to sexuality. Each element is carved and painted by hand with a composition that reinvents Baroque exuberance with contemporary vitality.
