Q&A With This Artist
A: Sterling silver, resin and thread are the main materials in my work. Pigment, cubic zirconia stone, gold filled metal help me highlight my work as well. Every single resin piece casting with thread is created from one-off plastic mold. Before I form a mold, I need to design thread structure in AI software, then shift a 2D design to a 3D mold. After grinding, sanding and polishing, resin will show unique finishing.
A: I love how clear resin is such a glass piece. Specific resin shape reflects beautiful light like a rainbow. Additionally, string structure in resin builds up a dimensional impression that attracts me to discover more possibilities on the resin.
A: My passion that comes from the process of exploration and innovation motivates me to create, to change, to optimize. I enjoy turning an idea into an actual work, which is not only in my career but also in my life.
