Uncommon Matters Urushi Wood Beam Earrings
For these Uncommon Matters Urushi Wood Beam Earrings, German designer Amélie Riech combines her signature tubular shapes with urushi, a Japanese lacquer technique. Reich produces her designs in Berlin, and for these lightweight earrings made from lightweight bass wood (from Linden trees), she employs urushi to achieve a rich, vibrant color—in this case, lilac. Her designs have been described as being simultaneously “Brutalist and buoyant,” an aesthetic drawn from her background in architecture, particularly her interest in the ideals of the Bauhaus and Socialist Modernism. (She also studied fashion and photography.). Lightweight and glossy, these Uncommon Matters Urushi Wood Beam Earrings are made for everyday wear and measure 0.6w x 1.4”diam.
