Hopea / Guy Vidal

01/01/2012

Goodbye 2011.Welcome 2012!

I’m beginning the new year with a look into the past. These pieces by Guy Vidal are substantial yet detailed in a way that keeps them light and airy. Born in Quebec, Canada in 1938, Vidal concocted his own pewter formula which allowed him to create intricate pieces that held their strength. Cosima Friesen curates the shop which curates his work is called Hopea. Hopea itself is a substantial selection of vintage modern jewelry focusing on Canadian and Scandinavian pieces from the 1960s and 70s. A great find (which also reminds me of my friend Kristin, of Mette!) (all images from Hopea)
