All S.RitterNYC raw and rocky work is one of a kind. The pieces come from a natural worn-metal response to materials discovered in our collective surroundings. Some of the influence is from worn metal on the sidewalks of NYC, natural stones that cross her path, either in the park, a gift from a friend or an odd and delectable mineral culled out of a collection from a geologist or other rock hound enthusiast.
The work takes the simple beauty of an object and ‘objectifies’ it into wearable, droolable adornment. With that simple concept, there is the result of the work.
That is why it looks unfamiliar. because you haven’t ‘seen’ that object before. and now it is right in front of you. These pieces now give you the opportunity to see, and wear, the natural objects around you.
