Agnė Žaltauskaitė, 2022, Lithuania
In one way or another, all my work can be called Memory of a Place. I constantly create new pieces to document my thoughts, memories or places, linking everything with uninterrupted materiality. This brooch symbolises the gloomy but very close to me atmosphere of a rainy, overcast day in Lithuania. It might look cold and depressing on the outside, however, inside, in a warm workshop, surrounded by cosy lamps, a contemplation that suddenly overcomes me creates an abundant rain of thoughts and powerfully ignites the feeling of happiness and fulfilment.
