Intro
Somebody once referred to me as ‘Morticia’ in a blog post about my jewellery. Does the name Morticia and the insinuated darkness suit me and my work? Was I the kind of child who would pull wings off insects?
Somebody once referred to me as ‘Morticia’ in a blog post about my jewellery. Does the name Morticia and the insinuated darkness suit me and my work? Was I the kind of child who would pull wings off insects? Why do I make these objects and jewellery pieces? What are my intentions? Am I trying to chock and provoke people? I will try to answer these questions and many more within my lecture. I will also share stories about collaborating with other artist and talk about my own experiences of the transition from being a student to a working artist.
