A collection of rings inspired by famous San Francisco's 'Painted Ladies'. Rings are made of two different types of wood : walnut and white ash. Enamelled gilding metal is connected to the ring with little screws, which make the whole piece a bit more architectural. They also allow to swap the enamelled parts between the rings.
Commision project, designed for an artist/illustrator. The whole piece is made of copper and enamelled. Design was followed by many testings as it was my first attempt to the enamelling technique. Creating variety of samples helped me with understanding material that I was working with. Colour and form were the major areas that I decided to focus on.
Brooch ispired by microscopic close ups of plants, made of silver, silicone and enamel.
Two brooches inspired by insects, made of brass, silver and painted pumice stone. For this project I have tested a wide range of materials, including pumice stone, sealant and sponge. In the end I decided to use a pumice stone, mostly because of its organic surface. I carved the stone and then with a sponge, applied the ink that sank into material. The main source of inspiration for this project was Damien Hirst's artwork.
This collection explores intriguing microscopic world of cells, full of colourful patterns and repetition. What fascinates me the most is the unexpected nature of them. What we are able to see with bare eye, changes its features under the magnification. Pieces are made of wood, which is not too obvious at the first sight.
