Jewelry Award 2018, theme: Baroque
I'm very honoured to be nominated for the Jewelry Award 2018, taking place in the new diamond museum, DIVA, in Antwerp on september, 28th.
My work is titled: "Baroque: an architectural reduction" I integrated
the baroque atmosphere into my architectural design process, keeping in touch
with the baroque style elements. The ‘dynamic movement’ is reduced to geometric
minimalistic dome shaped forms; the animal fur and pearls contribute in a
subtle way to ‘richness and vivacity’; ‘wealth and power’ are materialised by
combining gold and precious stones. Although different in their appearance, the
three brooches are in harmony through their identical shaped form.
I'm so delighted that some of my brooches will be published in Nicolas' new book!
Nicolas Estrada: "New Brooches is a reality. The book is being printed right now and will be available worldwide this year by the end of June in its English and Spanish versions. New Brooches features more than 400 photographs with the work from 172 jewellery artists, texts by Ramon Puig Cuyàs and Ezra Satok-Wolman, and the beautiful cover with the work from Turkish artist Selen Özus."
