Handmade pieces have a completely different energy, it’s like eating fruit straight from the tree. When somebody tries on for the first time one of my necklaces, they realize the power of an handmade object. I don’t know if it’s quantum physic but it works.
Do you think that jewelry is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work
Like with clothing, furniture etc...the majority of people is accustomed to buy object that have no soul. Handmade pieces have a completely different energy, it’s like eating fruit straight from the tree. When somebody tries on for the first time one of my necklaces, they realize the power of an handmade object. I don’t know if it’s quantum physic but it works.
The material I use, porcelain, is universally associated with fragility and beauty. Has a great heritage and it was so desired that is known as the “white gold”. I choose to use a porcelain body manufactured in Spain, in order to be more local (I live in Madrid).
What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I like when my pieces go out in the world. It’s very interesting to listen to people’s reaction, most of them have never seen non-glazed porcelain and they are surprised by the many quality that this material has.
Are other areas besides the jewelry, present in your work?
I ‘ve been working with ceramics for many years before devoting myself only to jewelry. So I guess I will always see myself as a ceramist
The last work, book, film, that has moved me was...
"The Hare with Amber eyes” by great ceramist and writer Edmund de Waal. This is the story of his netsuke inheritance, and how this objects where connected with his family’s history. He believe that things "retain the pulse of their making"
A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
I lived for many years in London, where I went to the great Central St. Martin’s College, and the atmosphere and the creativity of that time I will always miss.
is there any designer, jeweler, artist, you appreciate a lot?
I love Arielle de Pinto’s work; the final pieces retain and express the almost painful process of knitting chains. I see it as a kind of performance jewelry.
What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
The new chainemaille necklaces I am making, I am completely fascinated by the process which is an old medieval way to make metal armors.
