Brass Snake Ring - Joao Vaz



A hypnotic texture covers every inch of Joao Vaz’s snakeskin ring like a fully fledged epidemic. This intoxicating piece is the result of an aesthetic identity crisis which lead the designer to an almost Poirot-like self-investigation of his sketchbooks, design heroes and imagination.  This tactile, perfectly proportioned ring references Gaudi’s Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, the Sistine Chapel and Lalique’s intricate glassblowing, among other work, and every single groove was first gouged by hand in wax before being cast in thick brass in Sydney.

Joao Vaz

Portuguese designer Joao Vaz believes he has a responsibility to create pieces that make the heart flutter. “We need to remind ourselves from time to time of what it is to have consciousness, and a soul, and a heart, and feelings. We need to create work that really exacerbates this.” Meet him on our blog.
