As a child, I was fascinated by the Luffas that grew on the tree in my grandmother's garden and were later used in our kitchen and bathroom. A living plant that has grown on a tree has become a functional, still object.
Discovering beauty in the simple things and using them for my creations is a theme that has been accompanying me for many years as a person, an artist and a teacher for populations with special needs. The basic nature of jewelry making is the processing of a material into a condition far from its original shape and texture.
In my work, I deal with the initial state of the material, my source of inspiration, and create images that sometimes look like complex algorithmic systems printed on a 3D printer. The exposed core of the plant becomes urban towers, landscapes, lungs and tangle that can be traversed.
