I am just a reporter.

In my work I try to make people pay more attention to problems we cause to environment, welfare of domesticated and wild animals, animal rights, respect for life...

 

ANIMAL CHARACTERS
Representatives of certain animal species. Studies of expectations, generalizations, beliefs and symbolism around different species.

I observe how animals were positioned in ancient cultures and especially how they still have such a powerful part in our life.


METHOD
Life is just a beautiful system with quite sad and paradoxical structure. Something very huge is composed of super small particles. To find the balance and the ways how it alters.

Things which we can never fully understand, because it is unnecessary.

Animal forms, colors, materials and reasons to use jewelry… I never make my work to tell only stories about people, without telling the stories of other animals at the same time.

Empathy.


MATERIALS
Stones. Glass. Glass is something which looks in the end super cold material, but has needed enormous amount of warmth along the way of being manufactured. It needs to be handled with the greatest care, or it may easily harm you.


DEFINITIONS
a jewellery sculpture = a sculpture which tells about jewelry
