Lupin Wedding Crown

view Lupin Wedding Crown digital asset number 1
Artist:
Heikki Seppä, born Viipuri, Finland 1927-died Bainbridge Island, WA 2010
Medium:
formed, hammered, and soldered 18k gold, sterling silver, and diamond
Dimensions:
4 1/2 x 8 x 8 1/4 in. (11.5 x 20.4 x 20.9 cm)
Type:
Decorative Arts-Jewelry
Crafts
Date:
1982
Description:
In this piece, Heikki Seppä employed two technical innovations for silver and gold: three-dimensional tessellation (the creation of a mosaic pattern using small squares of stone or glass) and the use of 20-gauge silver sheet stock. The title of the piece refers to a Finnish custom similar to "throwing the bouquet." In the wedding rite, the bride wears a gold crown adorned with a lupin, a wild plant symbolizing abundance and fertility. Following the ceremony, the bride is blindfolded and single women dance around her. She then places her wedding crown on one of them, signifying that the recipient is the next to be married.
