Barnacle Stacker Ring | Brass | Andrew Xenos


Barnacles build their homes of calcium carbonate to withstand drastic changes in temperature, humidity and physical agitation. Andrew Xenos’ Crustacea Cirripedia series was created in order to pay homage to their solidarity and to draw strength from their sheer will to live in the face of all odds. Every piece is first hand carved in wax and then cast in metal.

Sizes available: 7 3/4 and 8 (please specify which size upon ordering!)
