STRENGTH VERSUS VULNERABILITY
Delicate, handmade ceramic chain and tough, timeworn brass are combined to create a beguiling work of art. Cluster multiple Link pendants to create a custom installation unique to your space.
Created in collaboration with ceramicist Alice Goldsmith, the Link Porcelain Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus examines both the strength and vulnerability of the artist’s porcelain chain. Fractured links suspend oversized brass shades, their fragility anchored and protected by oppositional metal.
“The chain for me started out as a commentary on strength versus vulnerability. There are links that link us to our experiences and link us to people. Sometimes they fracture and sometimes they don’t. —Alice Goldsmith
