Carly’s unique one-of-a-kind pieces are fabricated in the same manner as the limited production pieces, but these pins, unlike the production pieces, are fired upwards of thirty separate times in the enameling kiln.
Often, to increase the luminosity and brilliance of the enameled colors, gold foil will be placed underneath the enamel powder before it is fired, creating a sense of depth and vibrance in the finished pin. In a few of these pieces you will also note the addition of 18k gold.
The one-of-a-kind pieces are inspired by the fractured and sedimentary layers of rock cliffs, and glacially produced marks on the rocks. Loosely rendered drawings of such in colored pencil eventually translate into pieces like these.
The subtlety of these pieces attracts viewers to further investigate each plane of silver, each line representing a crack found in rocks and cliffs, and the many layered blocks of brilliant enameled color.
