Limited edition of 20, POA
(Also known as Skipping Stones)
24ct gold leafed skimming stones complete with individually made to fit leather belt pouch. Each stone was hand picked by Dominic Wilcox as stones he would like to skim on his travels through Italy and the UK.
The act of skimming (or skipping) a flat stone at the surface of the water in order to make it bounce as many times as possible is an age old pastime. Here Dominic Wilcox investigates and plays with the idea of value and luxury by taking one of the few free and abundant pleasures in life and making it exclusive, unique and precious. The fact that the stone's time of use lasts only a few seconds only heightens the perceived luxuriousness. Deciding when to throw may be a difficult decision for some. (read a story below)
