Yakisugi Cherry Blossom Pendant
"I want to do with you what Spring does to the Cherry trees.” Pablo Neruda
Reminiscent of a pair of sweet cherries, this pendant and earrings evoke the swing of stone fruit that is warmed from pink blossoms to ripen into deep red. Wood and bronze on a 28" bronze chain.
The collaboration of Callidus Guild and Aesa investigates the 18th century Japanese technique of Yakisugi, a process which uses fire to char and naturally finish wood.
