Experience Eternal Flowers
Create Your Own Blooming Season
A series of mixed-materials earrings combining traditional skills and modern design
The flowers bloom in the four seasons and the earrings are inspired by the petals of the flowers. They were handmade with the white porcelain of Chinese Dehua and the products show delicate craft. I used the feature of unglazed white porcelain which can absorb fragrance for up to several weeks.
Taking the four seasons as the main idea and thinking about the shape of the petals, I thought that Dehua porcelain can perfectly express the softness, lightness, and elegance of the flowers’ petals, and the ability to keep scent can be special characteristics separated from earrings made of other materials.
TRIALS & MAKING
After the shapes were determined, I used the papers to make a rough prototype to confirm the actual size to determine that the ratio and dimension were most suitable for wearing. I started to contact the local manufacturers, trying to make the first batch of white porcelain jewelry. Then, I put the metal accessories with the porcelain and tried to check the flaws that needed to be modified, making the second batch.
Season was displayed in two exhibitions.
First one was an IAA annual student exhibition.
Second exhibition was hold in 2019 Milano design week.
