A very realistic brooch from the 1988 Living Nature collection. Made of resin, hand-painted and varnished. According to the artist himself, his decorations are miniature sculptures.
Born in 1938, Ralph Massey is a talented American artist, sculptor and jewelry designer. Prior to the 1980s, in his work he preferred sculpture. However, in the early 1980s, together with the artist Sylvia Benneth, he opened the art studio “Raven”. And since that time, the main direction in his creativity, has become the creation of jewelry decorations and jewelry boxes. The most interesting collection was “Wildlife”, brooches, earrings and rings in the form of animals and birds. Also, no less interesting was the line of jewellery inspired by the characters of the books “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Wizard of Oz.”
However, in the early 1990s, Massey closed his workshop “Raven” and focused exclusively on painting. All the works of Ralph Massey are rather rare and are appreciated by collectors.
