Aluminum Bracelets Two Bracelets
Spiros finds inspiration in the geometry of totemic forms and ancient monoliths. Their purpose for ritual use remains mysterious, yet the artist mirrors her process of construction with these structures. She chooses metal as her medium because of its fluid response to shape, and its association with endurance, as well as the multiple surface possibilities.
