Crypsis by Trinidad Contreras

Brooch  /  Geometric   Minimalism   Conceptual
Selected Finalist at the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022.

Confounding the expectations of the viewer, the palate and materials chosen for this brooch are intended to create a sense of tactility that deceives the eye of the viewer. Contreras has created something that, on first viewing, appears to be a second skin and, with further attention, is revealed to be an ornamental piece of jewellery. Created from two elements made of porcelain, earthy stoneware, and leather, and wrapped with tulle that can be combined into one piece, the compositions are assembled in silver using traditional jewellery techniques.
