THE ARTIST SERIES

ONE OF A KIND work by YITM founder, MARIELE IVY. 

These special pieces were created on a retreat at the beautiful Ghost Ranch in Northern New Mexico this February of 2018.  Its an annual trip for me to explore lapidary and my own creativity outside of designing and creating for YITM. These pieces were an exploration of contrast and complimentary colors and patterns. All free form with emphasis on what visually felt good. I didn't plan the finished pieces, until all the cabochons were finished.

The commute to and from "work" each day was an inspiration session and one of the things I treasure most about my time at Ghost Ranch.

“The only point of this exercise was to have fun and get weird. I was able to play with the stones in front of me and experiment with natures incredible pallet. I felt like a collage artist while making these, sub scissors for a a giant rock saw!  ”
