THE GEM PENDANT
Treasures Untold is the new chapter of the “Pillars of Meerschaum” Collection, born out of a fascination of mythical stories about mermaids, shipwrecks and treasure hunts, and Feyza Kemahlioglu’s deeply rooted connection to the Aegean Sea.
Envisioning a mystical underwater archaeological site, formed by columns of intricately hand-carved Meerschaum, and hand-blown glass that has the colors, textures and remnants of the Sea, the collection takes you through the experience of exploring underwater and the mystery of what treasures you will find.
The Pillars are composed of glass globes shaped by hand to resemble rocks, full of texture and patterns made by colored glass frit and crystals. For the 11 ft long Pillar “The Gem”, the colors shift from white to turquoise to a darker hue of lagoon, to take you through the steps of diving into the divine Sea. The white globes with small crystals encrusted on it resemble seafoam, and waves crashing onto the sand. The turquoise and lagoon pieces with swirls, speckles, Barnacles and Sea Flowers stuck on the globes take you under the Sea, where you examine coral reefs, finding seashells, colorful fish and even a ship rope tangled around a giant rock. The glass “boulder” placed under the fixture is a continuation of the pendant, creating a visual break reminiscent of broken down ruins.
