For Better or Worse

Cast Sterling Silver

Wedding Ring

For Better or Worse takes an allegorical look at the institution of marriage or "Tying the knot". Using the knot as a symbol of the concept of life's ups and downs, reminiscent to a playground climber. The figures appear to both awkwardly straddle the climber and are cradled by it. Taking a closer look at the figurative forms, they comment on the ideas of inclusivity within the notion of disabilities.
