Lavoisier / Jewelry Accessories


Observing wood chips laying the grass next to a tree was the starting point of this project. The goal was to explore these 'ignored', but still aesthetically interesting natural elements by changing / transforming them into something else that could not only still carry its natural essence, but also give it more relevance, expose it. By mixing the wood chips with something neutral, like transparent resin, it was possible to create a showcase and a main role for the irregularly distributed natural pieces inside the molded object.
