Ship sculpture created with draped strings of pearls

Created with materials like pearl chokers, earrings, necklaces, brooches and wedding tiaras, Ann Carrington has created a mixed media sculpture of a galleon — a large sailing ship with multiple decks used in the 16th to 18th centuries.

This sculpture is a comment on the difference between the elegance of pearls and the problems surrounding pearl farming in China. “It is about pearls and the discrepancy between their perceived status of being timeless status symbols of refined taste and wealth (with exotic overtones) and the often very unromantic reality,” she said.
