The idea came about in an organic way, I can’t recall the exact moment as it was spontaneous. I can definitely trace it back to my childhood and a close relationship to nature, earth, plants and the transformation of materials.
The collection is based on the relation between different materials and on how they can converse and enhance each other. The contrast is essential, organic shapes combined with simple figures, poor materials with precious ones, light with darkness. Creating a suggestion in the observer without using figurative elements provokes a wider range of possibilities and reflections. For this reason the creation process becomes extremely important, the spontaneity of the form and the composition are fundamental, the imperfection becomes strength and the fragment infuses a feeling of completeness.
The jewel is born from the transformation of wood into charcoal, the metamorphosis of the material imparts value to the object, telling a story of unleashed shape shifting potential.
