Fathom and Form is the creation of Chris Baas and Carleigh Wamberg; two undergraduate design students who fully understand the meaning of interdisciplinary crossover. The couple met at CCA while studying Interior Design and Architecture, and it wasn’t long before they began to work collaboratively on what is now a highly developed collection of stunning and sophisticated jewelry for both men and women.
It is clear from their designs that the two know how to think in both spatial and innovative terms. Their intricate geometric forms create volume, alluding to their combined knowledge of architectural and interior spaces. Using the education they attained from their separate design departments, Chris and Carleigh start by using 3D modeling programs to conceptualize their products. The pieces are then 3D printed in wax, cast in silver, often plated in gold, then polished and assembled by hand.
The results are remarkable. With solid mountainous formations, angular skeletal structures, and symmetrical pyramid-like shapes, each piece is a statement. After only a little over a year of “bashing each other”, as Carleigh says, the studio/ housemates have managed to produce a clean, seamless, and consistent body of work. If one thing is for certain, the two make a perfect team.
