Title: ‘Home-nest’ Necklace
Materials: Paper, wood, paint, glass, laquer, plaster, felt
Statement:
‘I started thinking about the old floor boards at my childhood house, and tried something very literal. But then I started playing with the theme of home by creating some sort of nests for myself. I still have the feeling of my childhood home in them, just not in very literal ways.
As an artist, I love the ever surprising natural materials, putting pieces together, and creating my own surfaces.’
