Unlike traditional, mechanical methods of working, these materials enable me to create the structures and surfaces immediately and directly with my hands.
Which thoughts/considerations underlie this project?
This piece of jewellery is about relations, to be attentive and to be absent-minded. The broche is arranged on a bed together with other pieces. Someone has just left the bed, and the jewelleries are what have been left behind. Thus, the work is essentially an expression of a person’s sensed perception of fabric, body parts, as well as the touch of another person.
How can one perceive this piece in relation to your other works?
This piece functions as an extension of my study of the interaction between people and the materials/objects that surround them.
Which materials and/or techniques have you been using?
I have been using Japanese fine silver clay/fine silver paste to create new structures and surfaces. Unlike traditional, mechanical methods of working, these materials enable me to create the structures and surfaces immediately and directly with my hands. This is not to say that I am trying to revolt against traditional goldsmith techniques, which I am obviously still employing myself. I am merely interested in opening up a new dimension for the creation of free forms.
