Color Rings by Itay Ohaly

Color Rings by Israeli designer Itay Ohaly are pieces of jewellery carved from layers of coloured paint applied to a wooden table.

Ohaly spends months applying a layer of acrylic paint per day, then slices through the thick surface to create the raw material for the rings.

The rings often include slices of timber from the table beneath the paintwork.

It takes 4 month of daily painting to reach this thickness, creating a new material to work with.
