December 2015.Wallace Chan was born in China in 1956 to humble beginnings. In order to help support his family, he became an apprentice sculptor at a young age. Inspired by Michelangelo’s works, Wallace Chan discovered a great passion for carving that eventually lead him to jewelry design. With a workshop in Hong Kong and Macau, he creates only about a dozen pieces yearly. Dedicated to each design, Wallace Chan works with each gem until a complete harmony and balanced perfection is achieved.Driven by a desire to capture and reflect light, Wallace Chan is truly an artist devoted to his craft. His ability to play with light and flirt with color is exemplified by Lots 43 and 44. The way the light dances across each amethyst cabochon and reveals the pavé-set diamonds below is both playful and eccentric. The use of titanium and mother-of-pearl to further enhance these designs is a reflection of his revolutionary style; he is unrestricted by the conventional materials used by his contemporaries. Distinctively unique and pleasantly surprising, Wallace Chan’s style encompasses a boundless creativity that speaks through each of his creations.
