Bookends, designed 2000
cast resin in gem tones

edition of 100 (sold separately)


Derived directly from the "real fake gems" which the artist embedded in gallery walls and littered on the floors of museum and private homes, these cast-resin bookends draw attention to thoughts of beauty, value and material worth. These signature gem forms, for which the artist is most known, are cast in six variations on gem colors: ruby, emerald, sapphire, tourmaline, and the amethyst and amber seen here.

Each bookend is sold separately and all are signed and dated.
