Hokusai’s wave

In his new creations, François Garaude has forsaken the gemstones he’s been working with over the past years. He has depicted the famous work by Hokusai, The Wave, in earrings made of titanium, as this material is the only one capable of reproducing the intensity of the Prussian blue, which in 1830, renewed the language of Japanese printmaking.
