CLIFTON NICHOLSON Collection (Each Sold Separately – See Below)
Since the 1970’s Clifton Nicholson has been creating natural casts of the flora and fauna seen “outside his window”, and has since been acclaimed and collected by those who love nature, art, and the creative, wearable way these two elements come together in Clifton’s imagination.
Sadly, a fire recently rampaged his art studio, destroying many of the original casts along with it. That being said, his vintage sculptures are now truly one-of-a-kind, and are even more collectible, as these pieces cannot be made again.
Please see the exciting collection we are so fortunate to exhibit:
CLIFTON NICHOLSON Sterling and Lapis Ant Brooch – SOLD
From 1992, this stunningly accurate rendition of an ant has been fashioned into a sterling silver brooch with a large lapis lazuli abdomen. The pin measures 2.75 inches in length, and 1.5 inches in width, and weighs 41.7 grams. This lovely creature is priced at $299. SOLD
CLIFTON NICHOLSON Sterling Rose Earrings – SOLD
Clifton Nicholson had quite a following in Portland, Oregon as his collection was show-cased at Nordstrom in the late 1970’s, lending him to create a Portland Rose Collection. These sterling rose earrings are finely crafted with leaves, rose buds, and a blossoming flower. They have an omega French clip back, and measure 1.5 inches in length.

CLIFTON NICHOLSON Scallop Shell Belt with Orange and Purple Cords
Clifton Nicholson used many shells in his work, and this orange and purple scallop shell on sterling is a unique rendition, using the colorful shell as a belt buckle. Five silk cords in shades of orange and purple wrap the waist, and are connected by a signed sterling hook that can be moved throughout the cords for sizing preference. From 1981, this piece is an early work, and the belt design is one-of-a-kind. We have priced this piece of hip art at $399.

YOSHIKI HISHINUMA Green with Pink and Orange Painted Floral Cut Polyurethane Blouse, Size M – SOLD
A well-known designer in Japan, but little-known here in the United States, Yoshiki Hishinuma is recognized for his unique, origami-influenced clothing that also takes from elements of wind and air in his couture designs. Frustrated with traditional textiles, Yoshiki created his own materials, including this interesting experiment in polyurethane. This piece is truly unparalleled in its painted laser cut, paper-like fabric; gauzy and rubberized in texture, but organic in movement and flutter. This blouse is a statement in fashion and art combined. Size M. Priced at $199. SOLD
