- I' ve always been fond of Miro's surrealist and childlike figures and let myself daydream while wandering around his dreamy world, where everything was possible! His works subject me to a sense of complete freedom and joy, a sense that can only be compared with actually being a child!
So, it comes as no surprise that in my experiments in jewelry design, I regularly use Miro's shapes as an inspirational reference. Well, I have never managed to let my thought that free but I think that this is a lifetime procedure which demands great effort!
Somehow, in the jewelry presented bellow, I think I' ve managed to create forms of my own, forms that float between a surrealist aspect (inspired by Miro's work) and a more "analytical" one (inspired by Picasso's work) Or at least, I 've tried to ;-) At the same time I had in mind to create some elegant pieces of jewelry...
- A. Woman Forms
- "Yoga" - Silver Casted Earrings
- "Iokasti" - enameled silver, white pearl, fthoriti, glass, onyx
- B. Bird Forms
- "Mrs Sparrow" - Bronze, pearl, glass, onyx, hematine, ceramic bearing
- The story of this necklace is a rather funny one! My mother had cooked a rabbit for lunch... well, I couldn't actually eat that but I was observing its exquisite bones which formed a great variety of shapes and found particularly one that, as far as I can remember, seemed a lot like this! At first it seemed like a sparrow, but when I completed the synthesis of the necklace, it reminded me of an ugly, overdressed woman, walking full of pride... I can't actually explain why ... So, I named it Mrs Sparrow! It is one of my favourite pieces!
