Lavinia Rossetti – her project I-denti-ty is at the same time humorous and impactful. She did a great job in caring well about all aspects of her work from packaging to presentation and catalogue.
Unfortunately the photos do not show the actual quality of her presentation.
Dealing with teeth – denti in Italian- therefore the title I-denti-ty her pieces were presented in glass as happens to the false teeth at night and braquets at day.
her delicate bracelets (but they can also be worn as brooches) are real bites and the smile of real people has been the source of each of them.
this for example is the bite of a kid with its first teeth
we were only missing the golden tooth.
Enrica Prazzoli was the fourth Italian in this class and also her graduation project as Lavinia’s is really difficult to present in its actual quality through the photos in our possession.
Several agendas were fighting for attention in her ambitious “Spoon” project: the concept of “ospite”,
the notion of imperfection and the link to social rituals.
Her work is rich and well executed, but no actual jewellery resulted from it, her spoons plastic spoons with just very subtle interventions, cast in silver.
make beautiful and silently talkative objects to hold in your hand with wonder – we can say real jewellery in the sense of the ethimological root of the word – ‘jocale’ latin for plaything
Also Nur Terun’s work is conceptual and difficult to understand from just photos, also because her catalogue as actually also Enrica’s is a very important part of it.
she worked with cards (the usal pokercards in commerce everywhere) glueing them together in stacks and then slicing them again in thin layers.
The conceptual coherence of this project, resolved in all its different aspects – the material development, the presentation and the publication is all the more commendable because it led to a result which is not immediately visually appealing, but weaves a subtle charm once observed in its entity.
Hana Choi, from Corea worked on the notion of incommunicability, developing pieces with an extremely strong almost talismanic presence.
Through painstaking effort she developed and refined both the objects in all their details and the technique required to make them.
These groups, families or even genealogies of UFOs convince and attract in their rich colour palette and refined details.
Last but not least the work of Anna Drexel is about borders (individual and social) which we all need to set and about their interference in the life of each individual.In this way her pieces are really interactive, she sets these borders and the owner can decide to break them or not.
the pieces are wearable in their original state or in the broken one, and some pieces as a ring and a bracelet have to be broken in order to become wearable.
