Donald Eriacho

About The Striking Buckle Hosting Textile Designs

The Eriacho's mosaic work is precise and honest, from the boldest to the most delicate lines.  

The silverwork encasing and framing the inlay is strong but only supports as a vehicle.  Created using commercial rolled sheet silver and half round wire, the space between the bezel and frame edge is filled with an interesting straw or grasslike texture fabricated from small pieces of wire and sheet producing a "blanket on the grass" look.
