This artwork is the first piece in an ongoing series exploring the diamond shape. It is based on the knowledge that blue and pink diamonds are the most rare and sought after diamonds in the diamond industry. The layered formation of the diamonds is examined here along with ghost images of the diamonds yet to be formed in the coal layer as seen here in a detail image.
The view of the back of the artwork shows the craftsmanship of the stitching. This piece is designed to be easily hung in any orientation by the collector. This makes the textile artwork very versatile and can be utilized in many different sized areas as well as change the impact of the piece. When hung on point as shown here, the piece measures 70 ½” tall by 41 ½” wide. The standard measurement is 31"h x 39"w.
