Rattan cast brooch, silver
Today it is common to see imitation rubber / plastic rotting mesh and metal rotting in outdoor furnishings, a certain material translation which creates another typology. ‘Translation’ was a method used during the project to experiment with perceiving borrowed qualities from other materials bestowed on rattan mesh. The end result was cast in silver and then with some pieces plated in gold. The translation also occurs in the transformation of the original material used, i.e. the practical function of woven rotting mesh usually used for chairs, to another function of decorative jewellery.Available in gold and silver.
