“Decorating bodies with body pieces helps us to appreciate the joy that comes from accepting our objectivity, ‘Thingness’ as the contemporary artist Paul Thek defines it, referring to the Catacombs of the Capuchins in Palermo.
The Thingness collection is inspired by Thek’s work and consists of body parts such as eyes, teeth, small tits and legs.
This is the Eye Statement Ring.
These are my deep brown eyes. I’m spreading them everywhere, to keep an eye on you. Like the eyes of antique dolls, these eyes are handmade in glass, each slightly different.
Murano glass has an incredible variety of colors, but they were not vivid and realistic enough. I created glass slats by contaminating the glass with other materials, to create a unique pattern each time.”
