What is it= necklace

where is the piece worn= around the neck

Unknown fact: he has researched into his illness of diabetes and with this data he takes in a makes these wonderful jewelry to communicate with other patients. He looked at the ribbon that represents breast cancer now he wanted to represent his illness here is the video below where he explains all this. Very interesting man:

Materials used: Acrylic, resin 

Treatment and process: I think he would have had to mould the acrylic together to hold each ring around each other, then he would have painted on the resin and died the acrylic to get the different colours etc.

Original use for material:

  • Resin- is used for many things, vanishing furniture it is a thick liquids that harden into transparent solids.
  • Acrylic- fake fingernails, doors, paints, furniture, the list goes on.

Peter Chang- bracelet 2007-2008

Peter Chang is a sculptor; complex brightly coloured pieces which can be worn or can simply exist as objects in their own right.  He uses various coloured plastics, such as acrylic and PVC, to create jewellery and furniture, and is influenced by nature, organic and enigmatic forms.

What is it= bracelet

Where is the piece worn? on the wrist

Unknown fact= Chang cites his chinese heritage as a theme in his artwork. He uses the balance of good and pure evil in his Frankensteinian/sci-fi forms. Many of the surrealist pieces he encountered working under Hayter at Atelier 17 had an influence on Chang’s work. His modern style reflects marine life with their colours and dirty form. He is inspired by different types of alien life, such as mars.

Materials used= Resin,acrylic, silver.

Treatment and process=  he starts with a polystyrene base that he carves into shape. He then covers the surface using mosaic and lacquer techniques, faceting and tweezering tiny pieces of coloured acrylic into position. He then paints on layers of resin to make it shiny.

Original use for materials=

  • Resin- is used for many things, vanishing furniture it is a thick liquids that harden into transparent solids.
  • Acrylic- fake fingernails, doors, paints, furniture, the list goes on.
  • Silver- jewellery, coins, electronic items, table- were ournaments

Lisa Walker- Necklace 2009

What is it: This is a necklace.

Where is the piece worn: around the neck

Unknown fact:  Lisa does not buy materials for a piece. She is a junk lady, who constantly gathers everything that has a good color, an ugly shape, that looks cheap, that shines, that is flexible, or the opposite – almost impossible to handle. But she can see the beauty in all that stuff and is able to tell stories in their combinations.”

Materials used: Plastic and thread.

Treatment and process: I believe that she would have had to drill a whole in the little plastic men figures and pull them through the thread maybe they are even welded together

Original use for materials:

  • Plastic= this is used in endless products and items such as household items, toys, packaging, clothing, jewellery the list goes on.
  • Thread= mainly clothing, as it is stretchy.
