Jeweller

Bio

Floor Mommersteeg was trained as a goldsmith in Schoonhoven and then graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 1992. Floor works with nylon thread which appears to have grown by itself into the final shape. She often works with pronounced colours running from one shade to another. Her work has been exhibited worldwide.

Statement

Floor Mommersteeg constructs airy, transparent shapes out of nylon wire, a strong and sturdy material with a glasslike sparkle, which can be tinted in the hues of the air and the sea. The shapes she designs are becoming more organic and free, their wire-structures densify or loosen up and flow around the body. Work made by Floor seem to have grown like cells; her bracelets are reminiscent of clumped up crystals, her colliers of clotted lava. Her jewellery pieces seem to capture moments in a dynamic process.
