A collection inspired by the romance of our human fluidity, a delicate balance of the tangible and intangible. Heavy in form, yet elusive in value, the sweeping motion of metal captures the essence of our abstract force and motion within time and space. vertigo |ˈvərtəgō| noun, a sensation of whirling and loss of balance, associated particularly with looking down from a great height, from Latin, ‘whirling,’ from vertere ‘to turn.’
The Balance Collection
A collection of 'romantic armor,' embodying a balance of love, time and space. The entire collection is influenced by an examination of sculptural romance, capturing the true balance of movement in sculpture. Always in constant motion on the wearer, Ashley Childs truly delivers her passion for meticulous detail and fascination for motion in sculpture.
With an emphasis in sculpture, Ashley finds the value of form and movement by recreating abstract, theoretical, moving-metals in these delicate, feminine and energetic forms. Each shape and form come to life as striking, sculpturally energetic and theoretical voices in their movement.
Precise and delicate layers of fine, layered chain make up a long-loved and technically meticulous process for Ashley Childs. In this Rhythm collection, metal becomes liquid and it’s movement becomes a sculptural rhythm.
