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.
