This body of work consists of brooches.
I use the circle as a basic component and put together three-dimensional forms with six different circle sizes. These forms are built symmetrically, starting from a center and adding and arranging the components in different angles to form clusters and layers. The resulting shape is a rigid meshwork, where the cube can be recognized as the main organizing form.
Than I put the colors over the pieces and also balls at the exact places. Building the forms was like a game for exploring variations.
I used the same number of components to put together forms with different characteristics: pattern, density, color and size. The pieces are first built up in wax and then cast in one piece in bronze than powder- coated and bolls have been added at the end.
