Wooden pendant designed by Andrew Thornton from original sketches and produced in-house at Allegory Gallery.
From Andrew: I was really sad to hear about the passing of Toni Morrison. Some of her books are burnt in my memory, leaving an indelible mark. I'm reluctant to say that they were "good books", because that's not quite right. They were horrific books. They were oftentimes heartbreaking, visceral, and painful. But they were also beautiful. They had a fairytale quality that was lyrical and hypnotic. They made me feel things and think things that I hadn't considered before and there was a poetry in her prose and a rhythm in her words. I wanted to honor her memory with some commemorative laser-engraved wooden pendants. I tried to pick just one quote, but there were too many good ones to choose from. So I made five. They're all etched on maple and feature quotes by Toni Morrison. RIP, Toni Morrison.
