Conceptual Jewelry > Mortals and the Jug 2017

Mortals and the Jug investigate the intersection of spirituality and virtuality . The pieces feature imprints of water surfaces, a segment of which appears in each piece.

Water. Reflection. Restoration. Life.

A form closely related to water is the jug. The brooches contain a lamellated and pixilated version of this, employing Computer Aided Design techniques in conjunction with hand fabrication. Added layers come from the interiors of broken cell phone touch screens: optical screens and mirrors that shine a distorted light on the reality of each piece, leaving us to question which world they belong to.
