Mai Orama Muñiz and Erica Millner's art utilizes a combination of precious metal and wood. Their bracelets and earrings have sculptural elements, such as a three-part bangle that features each of the three curving arches interlocking into a single smooth piece that has a sense of rotational power. Their geode-like necklace has a satisfying heft of shape, with each wooden “bead,” matte charcoal black, populated by dots of silver to break up monotony. The use of wood stems from their first craft fairs in Puerto Rico, where they began their career.
In the Press
Modernism is a religion of logic and Millner and Orama are true believers. Their necklace made from ebony wood segments carved with geometric facets is an intellect-affirming triumph.
