The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) collection consists of various jewelry pieces. The design was inspired by the generosity of the Firestone Family whose collection of Canadian Art will be housed at the OAG.
In particular, the inspiration of the jewelry collection came from the staircase of the Firestone home that has been preserved and will be installed as a working staircase in the new building of OAG.
In the TYI for OAG Collection you will find the inspiration that our designer, Tazim, saw in the stairwell and the geometric pattern of the surrounding walls. The cube pieces are a nod to the architecture of the new OAG building, an appropriate symbol of our donation from sales of the TYI for OAG collection to the new building capital fund .
It is very important for TYI to support the arts in our community and with your purchase you become part of this support. You can support the Ottawa Art Gallery by purchasing these handcrafted sterling silver items.
