Intro
Selen Özus was born in 1983 in Istanbul, where she continues to live and work. She got her BFA in Ceramic and Glass Design in Mimar Sinan Fine Art University, followed by a three year Jewellery Program in Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence where she took classes from Peter Bauhuis, Manfred Bischoff and Ruudt Peters.  Her work has been exhibited locally and internationally. She teaches at the Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio, she co-founded with Burcu Büyükünal.

Statement

It all starts with the valuable beauties and ugliness’ that surround us: People, being human, lights, spaces, relations, memories, nature and details.

The sensations created by everybody and everything awaken a desire to produce. In fact, all shapens up while paying gently attention to the details. From then on my sole aim is to retreat to my secured world and to concretize what I see with my feelings… to reflect the combination of brain and heart. While producing, drawings become objects, objects become art jewellery. Once my strong feelings balanced, the rest passes to the piece.
