Crystal ice ring

this was 1 ring, the water left-over from one ring

A  beautiful reaction to our mass consumer society is made by Carolien Van Den Hole in the shape of crystal ice rings. She an textile- and productdesigner from Belgium, who searches for authenticity, uniqueness, experience and emotional satisfaction that lasts in her work. So instead of selling rings, she sells the mold for you to make your own crystal ice ring. Wear it straight out of the freezer for only about one minute until it melts. The sensation would be a cherishable moment on a hot summers day. Her design also makes a great gift. That way you have the choice of giving the mold so the receiver can make as many rings as she/he likes or giving your own homemade crystal ice ring to be worn by the receiver for just that special moment.

Last week I went to the opening of Carolien Van Den Hole's exhibition E.erste H.ulp B.ij O.ntwerpen (First Aid With Design) at the Beyond Fashion Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium. The rings and their molds are on display in a stylish little white freezer with a glass door.
