Gyro Bangle Bracelet
Watkins was intrigued by the two aspects of the Gyro bracelet—animated when worn and inert when flat. Composed of pivoting concentric circles, this work is representative of Watkins’s clear, reductivist forms; the bracelet speaks to rationality and balanced proportion, yet creates a playful sculpture for the wrist.
