At first glance, my immediate thoughts abouts this Daniel Zelig 'Elements' collection is that it reminds me of toy chains I used to play with as a kid. In reality, this fabulous collection of necklaces are not tough enough to stand up to children playing, as each piece is made from high-quality, fragile ceramics.
The artist behind the Daniel Zelig Elements collection attends the Industrial Design Department at the Holon Institute of Technology, and just a look at these intricate pieces will make it clear that Daniel Zelig has had professional training. These industrial-inspired pieces are simply stunning.
Implications - The use of ceramics represents a merging of quality materials and unusual inspiration. Companies looking to create products that are meant for an adult audience should be inspired to experiment with fragile materials in order to create dynamic, delicate results.
