Sylvi developed the technique of anodizing aluminum she uses in the early eighties, and is one of the few artists today who anodizes her own work. This gives her greater artistic freedom and total control over her art. It is an industrial process which involves converting aluminum hydroxide to aluminum oxide, which is a reactive state respondent to coloring agents. The metal is electro-chemically prepared, then dyed and sealed, rendering the color permanent and the metal non-corrosive.
All products are of anodized aluminum, 100% hand crafted (including all parts) and dyed by the artist. Colors are vibrant and penetrate the metal. Exceptionally lightweight.
Mini Confidence Alert! These are for the woman who likes to wear something different, but not so different that people stop in their tracks as you walk by. About 2" long, and I say that because I forgot to measure them. Please click through the detail images to get an idea of where they fall.
