Inside the oubliette is a small well. While I was making this ring I was thinking about fortresses, medieval contraptions and a trip to Winchester castle where I saw an oubliette in person for the first time. It was much shallower than I expected, only about 3' deep.
The very first time I heard of an oubliette was in the movie "the labrynth" with david bowie. There is a scene where the main character is cast into an oubliette, that is very deep like a well with and it has hands that are lining the walls helping her down the well. When she gets to the bottom it expands into a deep cavern. So when I went to Winchester, England when I was a teenager and saw a real Oubliette, I was really disturbed by how small it actually was. 3'deep or less by 4x4. in the floor.
An oubliette (from the French oubliette, literally "forgotten place") was a form of dungeon which was accessible only from a hatch in a high ceiling. The word comes from the same root as the French oublier, "to forget," as it was used for those prisoners the captors wished to forget.
This handmade ring is made from copper that is formed, soldered and hammered. Custom sizes available. Like all of my pieces, this is made to order by myself in my studio, so no two will every be exactly alike. This particular cage ring has a very thick band 1"wide with a stacked wall leading to the cage. Available in all sizes. If you don't know your ring size, please contact me for a paper chart.
