Cameo

Cameo

Birth

Designed by Vasty

The Vasty studio’s design is reminiscent of the cameo, the old-fashioned piece of jewellery bearing a face in profile and handed down in families from one generation to the next.
The textured appearance of stone sculpted in relief highlighting the different coloured layers is mirrored here in the technique used on a design made of carefully crafted paper.
The layers symbolise transmission, future prospects and depth, conjuring up the figures of the parents and thus the underlying figure of the child. The surrounding cloud-like curls bring to mind the world of dreams.
This contemporary treatment of the image blows the cobwebs off the cameo and revamps the profile in an encounter between old and new, echoing the meeting of the generations down through the years.
