Creating in flow with obsidian

 

Maron Vidal [...] who before now has worked black coal into enameled ceramic necklaces, this autumn is coming out with pendants and rings in obsidian, whose smoky stripes change with the light. “This obsidian from Mount Ararat has the special characteristic of being totally translucent in spots. From what seems at first a thick black, it turns out to have veins of varying density, which give it that incredible clarity.”

Marion Vidal imagines a mobile, modular architecture that comes to life and is transformed by the way the body is put together and moves.  Vermeil and silver take on the suppleness of a ribbon – the throughline of Marion Vidal’s creations – to encircle, support and emphasize the green of the jade, the red of the jasper and the black of the obsidian in an interplay of proportions where stone, discreet or imposing, plays the leading role.
