My project explored the artichoke plant, by looking deep into its heart.
I discovered a conflict in the harmony of different textures, between the soft and the hard, between the many and the individual, the run of time protruding and showing its reproduction mechanism, a mechanism that allows the birth of hundreds of new plants.
Between two worlds that live side by side, on the one hand organic - where my intervention was limited, and the metal that I processed and designed using classical jewelry techniques on the other hand.
I ended up connecting the two elements to create a serie of jewelry that could be seen as a fusion between the two worlds.
A series of objects that will eventually be dismantled and released as well as a large number of new objects, similar to pollen flying through the wind.
