Wallace Chan: Dream Light Water

Author : Juliet W. De La Rochefoucauld

The first illustrated monograph on a jewelry creator who has realized an imaginative world inspired by butterflies, insects, fish, and mythological creatures. This remarkable limited edition book showcases eighty-six pieces of jewelry, unique works of art that were conceived and realized by Wallace Chan, through close-up photography that emphasizes details, materials, technical innovation, and the visionary talent of the artist. Chan sculpts with a lightness of touch that defies the abilities of most artists and uses light as the leitmotif of his colorful and sensual jewels. His pieces reflect his Zen philosophy, adopting realism as a medium to express abstraction, and reveal a unique craftsmanship in developing new techniques for carving precious stones and manipulating titanium and jade, using tools he has made. The collection features some of Chan’s most intricate and technically challenging pieces that have led him to enter the ranks of the top jewelry artists in the world.
