Brooch, Jungle Plate Nr. 01, from the Jungle collection
The organic, flowing tendrils of this brooch resemble both exotic floral forms and coral. The intricate striations of the Thuja wood shapes are anchored in a small silver geometric base. Similar contrasts in form and material recur throughout Tolvanen’s work.
