Brandy Worsfold | Kaleidoscope Ring
Artist: Brandy Worsfold, California
Materials: brass, glass, acrylic
Artist Statement: My last battle, I created a ring with a working maze game, and I wanted to create something interactive this time, too. I took inspiration from a glass marble, and how it creates an entirely different view of reality. The world feels very different depending on the day and your perspective, and I wanted to create a ring that reflected that idea. So on this ring a bird soars over brushed clouds and a starry sky band; very different from our grounded worldview, but we humans can seek a different perspective by looking through the functioning kaleidoscope on this ring.
Artist Bio: Brandy Worsfold is the artist & silversmith behind Crow Totem Arts. She grew up overseas as a tck (third culture kid)—and lived like a local, exposed to a variety of cultures, religions and world views.
