“The term Foliates is derived from the botanical world of plants. It relates to leaves and leaf
structures, their highly evolved shapes that are there to capture sunlight and rain.
These rings and this collection appear is as if the very last virgin leaves of a tree or plant
have unfurled from ones hand so that there is a relationship between the finger and the leaf, the
gold appearing from the delicate void that I find so feminine and sensual and unattended.
They sit lightly, exploring the dynamics of space and the digital realm converging organic
design with the nature of naturalness that underlines my life’s commitment to sourcing the
trinity that can exist so succinctly when technology, materials and form converge in the
advanced times in which we live.”
– Ross Lovegrove, London 2013
