Watch: Vikki Kassioras fusing silver chains
Vikki Kassioras’ hand-fused chains are a fixture of her practice. Each strip of metal is rounded into a link and heated carefully to meld the silver together, like a child making a paper chain. This process can only be controlled to a certain extent, so every chain and every link is different. In the lead up to the release of e.g.etal’s curated ‘Inimitable’ collection, we asked Vikki to describe the intention behind her process. ‘Inimitable’, released November 13, 2017, will showcase the work of six e.g.etal artists who strive to create deliberately unpredictable jewellery.
