Atacama

To behold the Atacama is to gaze upon a blindingly fierce and miraculously rich landscape. Jagged ranges, shimmering salt lakes, felsic lavahow can a barren landscape hold so much?

The most arid place on Earth, the Atacama is fenced in by two mountain ranges, creating a two- sided rain shadow effect where no clouds can pass through. Some parts of this North Chilean desert have not received rain in centuries.

And yet in the high altitudes, the peaks are blanketed by snow. Oases and hot springs speckle this formidable landscape. Cloudless for 300 days a year, the Atacama is the perfect site for star- gazing and is used as a test site for Mars missions. A place of punishing heat and freezing cold, there is no place that exemplifies the paradox of life so well.

Tenacious, unchanging and unchangeable yet capricious, and as indomitable as the people who live therethe Atacama fuels the inspiration for this modern Kukka collection. Using dazzling CZs and shimmering, textured gold, the Atacama Collection is one of alien forms and ethereal beauty, of enclosed space and rugged blooms. It is a collection about survival against all odds, of loveliness and blessing found in the unlikeliest of places.
