WAVE RING WITH A TAHITI PEARL

Continually depicting the natural world, Arje Griegst series of rings in the second half of the nineties brings a new and highly articulated language to his ongoing fascination with the ocean. Opposite currents collide in gold crests and troughs, with rubies emulating rosy sunsets or diamonds suspended between rocaille swells.

WAVE HISTORY

Unlike modernism’s quest for calm, clean lines, Arje wanted to capture the transient, ambiguous and powerful forces of nature that can’t be tamed whilst at the same time demonstrating their ferocity. He sought to capture the water’s movements and create a stylised image of the complex and contradictory formations that can occur on the surface of the ocean.

SKETCH CREATED FOR A WAVE SCULPTURE, 2008.

SCULPTURE

The material was Arje's co-creator, wether he worked in gold, silver, porcelain or in larger formats such as this Wave sculpture, he had an exquisite feeling for the dynamic between precision and fluidity, hardness and softness, material and form, Arje brought a rare sense of vibrating splendour inspired by the beauty of the natural and mythical worlds.

WAVE RING TAHITI PEARL

From 1996-2000 Arje returned again to his interest in water. He developed a wax technique that would allow him to achieve the precision he strove for. 

WAVE RING WITH TAHITI PEARL. An 18K gold ring with a large Tahiti pearl made in Denmark by fine jewellery designer Arje Griegst. The gold has been moulded in peaks and troughs resembling waves. It is wider on top and then tapers into a narrow band on the back. At the top of the ring sits a large, black, glossy Tahit pearl that is partly embedded in the gold. The ring has been placed at the edge of a grey-green piece of ornamental plaster resembling a rock, which sits on a white backdrop
