Koi–a living Jewel, a jewellery installation.
Koi – a domesticated fish that is referred to as ' a living jewel ' in Japanese, is an installation made of cast wax. The casting wax is one of the first phases of the production process when casting metal – only witnessed by the maker. The installation is a living ornament shown at an early production stage, but instead of being cast – the process is reversed and the wax is slowly melted back into raw material.
