Context Gallery, jewels and contemporary objects

Montse Basora

I like to experiment with all kinds of materials, to discover their expressive potential and to play with textures and colours. I don’t reject any technique; actually sometimes I even invent them. Volume is present in all my jewellery, probably because of my experience in sculpture. At first sight, the pieces seem simple and following an initial more complex idea I try to review them and leave out the anything irrelevant. My latest jewellery are small structures covered by a thin coating of resin, which lets the light go through, making them seem like light and fragile figures.
