COUP de COEUR ! Sabrina Meyns -merveilles de botanique

Chez Sabrina Meyns, Irlandaise, la délicatesse, la transparence, la poésie, et, surtout, le papier faits bijoux ! un délice à savourer en ces temps difficiles …….

« I am a jewellery designer and papermaker based in the Workhouse Studios, Ireland. I combine hand-made paper with fine silver and seeds to create delicate, highy detailed sculptural jewellery and decorative pieces.
Drawing my inspiration from the garden, I focus particularly on the late summer and autumn period. I am especially fascinated by the delicate qualities of seedpods and the miniature elements that are seeds. When plants and flowers come towards the end of their life cycle their petals and leaves become fragile and translucent. Leaf veins and plant skeletons appear and the plants become beautiful, ghost-like creations of their former selves. Yet these frail beings hold within themselves the precious seeds for next year’s growth.
I have chosen my materials to reflect the fragile and precious nature of these plants. They best translate my fascination with the translucency, intricate engineerings and ephemeral beauty that exist in nature.
I graduated from NCAD, Dublin in 2008 with a degree (1.1) in Craft Design-metals. Later that year I co-established the Workhouse Studios, a new craft collective based in Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford. Workhouse Studios is built on the philosophy of design-led, innovative products, including glass, ceramics, jewellery and textiles.  »
