Intersections
This newest body of work consists of brooches, pendants, rings and earrings.
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.

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 and size.

The pieces are first built up in wax and then cast in one piece in silver or gold.

The GRASSIMESSE is an international forum and a fair for applied art and product design from all fields. It stands in the tradition of the historical GRASSIMESSE, founded in 1920 and famous as “Meeting Place of Modernity.” Since the reestablishment in 1997, the fair has been held once each year on the last weekend of October.

The GRASSIMESSE forum and sales exhibition in equal measure, reflects the world of ideas and the variety of contemporary creative design, promotes developments and sharpens the awareness for design quality. Unique products, limited editions and sample industrial products of jewellery, ceramics, glass, textile, clothing, furniture, metal, leather, toys etc. display a fascinating variety of creative design which allures to see and buy as well. This selection and international orientation enables to gain a comprehensive overview of recent innovations and trends, as well as timeless modern design.

Subject and concern of the GRASSIMESSE is the selection and promotion of quality. Therefore a jury of experts decides on the selection of the exhibitors and will award the four prizes on the occasion of the GRASSIMESSE. The GRASSIMESSE is organized by the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts and takes place in the reconstructed Grassimuseum, an important building of the Art Decó period. The exhibition rooms with 1,200 sqm provide space for almost 100 exhibitors.
