2022 | Mirror, enamel, copper
In the 1960s and 1970s, the C. Jere metalwork firm produced a number of wall sculptures and other decorative artworks. These included the “Raindrops” series, whose assemblages of small, rounded disks suggested various patterns made by falling rain. Amy Lau has reimagined the Raindrops motif in a new design — manufactured by Brooklyn-based Klin Enamel — that still hints at its Brutalist heritage. Thin plates of enameled copper surround the central mirror surface like exquisitely crafted, abstracted petals, in a flowering of orange tones: from marigolds, apricots, and tangerines to deep ochres, ambers, and rusts.
