Developed in 1996 in the basement studio of the sculpture department at New York University, the Surface to Air jewelry collection is one of the earliest endeavors from the international fashion and art company. The original two and three finger rings, hand cut and finished from stock 1/4" aluminum, became the predecessors for the vocabulary that now defines the subversive and narrative aesthetic prominent in the collections. Many of the original designs can be seen as three dimensional developments of two dimensional graphic concepts.
This Spring Blackbird is pleased to welcome Surface to Air back in the form of the original two-finger rings as well as a wide assortment of necklaces, featured above and below.
