Dried aubergine peel, corn leaf, bronze, silver, sponge, threads, acrylic paint


Have you ever wondered whether you can find inspiration in absolutely anything? Whether you can go beyond the obvious identity of an object and allow it to transport you, via new routes and applications, to destinations so far unknown?

Inspired by a delicate flower, my work is based on the frail nature of things. I try to work with materiality, using mostly natural materials such as aubergine peel and corn leaves and I try to explore their limitations without losing the feeling of a fragile piece. That’s how I create flowers that take shape in the landscapes of my dream world.Can an aubergine be transformed into a piece of jewelry?
