December 1969 is the month Ivaan started working in metal arts. It would be more accurate to say he became obsessed with metal arts, because although he continued to work in photography at Maclean Hunter Publishing for another four years, he spent every available minute on his new-found passion.
This is the first ring Ivaan ever made. 40 years later, remembering his early experiments, he said: "With my early pieces, I wondered if I'd have to pay someone to take them away."
One can see organic motif in this first work by Ivaan which makes his mature work so powerful.ReplyDelete
