A horse head with its mouth agape and eyes wide open as if in full stride is the latest example of wearable art by the accomplished and prominent sculptor and art jeweler, Christopher Ross.
Available in exquisitely crafted gold and sterling silver, it is an Objet d’art designed to be worn on an artisan made belt of walnut brown calfskin for men or a dazzling blue snakeskin for women.
Christopher Ross envisioned a belt as a jewel destined to become an heirloom. Each small edition piece is sculpted and finished from A-Z by Mr. Ross himself; numbered, signed and stamped with his signature thumb print, date and copyright. Notable collectors include The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Yale Art Gallery and The Boston Museum of Fine Arts. His art to wear are eye catching and unmistakable expressions of individuality and discerning taste.
