When I went for my daily morning walk, out in the country, I noticed an old and dry persimmon tree. I took a few twigs, and thought about bringing it back to life. After creating a nest-like shape, I casted it with resin inside aluminum foil.

Artist list

Moshe Botser
Polymer is the material that represents our era and as a contemporary artist I feel obliged to work with it. Colorful and vibrant, Moshiko's work uniquely combines polymers, silver, and gold to craft skin-friendly pieces inspired by nature, architecture and science. The organic morphs into high tech and the futuristic meshes with antiquity in jewelry which is often whimsical and always surprising.
