Lara Henderson is a book artist, printmaker and designer based in Providence. She prints out of AS220, a community print shop located Downtown. This piece is inspired by her grandmother’s diamond, which Lara has been wearing every day since she was 21. “I have been trying for years to mimic the experience of looking into a diamond, how it is both clear and full of rainbows,” she says. “Its light-catching facets make it seem infinite.”

Material: C2 Paint, Montana Gold Spray Paint
