  • John Iversen, Pin, 1989, gold, enamel, copper, silver, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Richard T. Evans Fund, 2000.1

Luce Center Label

John Iversen's pins are inspired by irregularities in nature. He is particularly interested in pebbles, a fascination that began in 1979, and as he said, "Once you discover something it stays with you." Pin's flat, round surface is like a "sliced" pebble, with flecks of color strewn freely about the surface in an irregular, natural arrangement.
