If our pets can have appliances, can our appliances have pets? We think so. And our toaster confirmed this.
This ring was a commission from a large electronics manufacturing firm in Los Angeles California. They were interested to see what would happen when they let a couple of artist's loose in their facility. We had just returned from the old Roman city of Trier, where we were much impressed with the ancient mosaics. The small electronic components immediately struck us as tesserae, and the ring flowed from that.
