American artist Aaron Patrick Decker, created an intricately enameled toy, cup-and-ball, covered in diamond harlequin patterns for Ornamentum s "Up In Smoke; Contemporary Studio Artists from the Jewelry, Silversmithing and Design World Take On Marijuana" exhibition. The cup handle is a one hitter that detaches via a silver chain to the ball, a toy too pretty to play with. Decker is a jewelry artist based in Detroit whose work has been shown in exhibitions in the USA, Netherlands, China, Germany and more. He is the recipient of The Windgate Fellowship in 2012, Mercedes Benz Emerging Artist Award 2015 and the MARZEE Graduate prize 2015.
