Intricate systems of pipes, hand fabricated by metalsmith Yuri Tozuka are connected by glimmering chains, reminiscent of flowing water, to create an elegant, city inspired, opera length necklace.
“I have often found myself inspired by the intricacies of anatomy that animate living things. This inward focus on the beauty of the minute within a closed system helped me to see a previously hidden beauty within larger man-made systems. Considered a blemish on the landscape by some, I found a harmonious beauty towards industrial installations. By fabricating these structures within the form of something typically beautiful, I hope to be able to share this insight with others.” -Yuri Tozuka
