Memory and light…These two elements were key to Mara’s work throughout her master project. Her challenge was to find a way to let both wearer and viewer experience the wonder of a glimmering memory. Inspired by photographs made during treasured moments, the shape and colours of the pieces have been refined to become sometimes delicate, sometimes harsh. The result? Very light pieces, made from silk an aluminium, that contain a subtle play of light.
