Raissa Bump is an artist born in the North East who is currently working in the San Francisco Bay area. She works in collaboration, joining materials and techniques of the clothing and jewelry she is making. Her inspiration often stems from the incredible history of all that is worn on the body–she is thrilled to contribute her own designs to the rich history of adornment! Raissa received her BFA with honors from Rhode Island School of Design and also studied in Florence, Italy at Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewelry with Giampaolo Babetto. Enriched by a curiosity in the parallel, yet sometimes blurry line between jewelry and apparel, Raissa’s work is fueled by a direct response to contrasting materials that when together create complementary relationships.

« My work is an investigation of clothing patterns, weave structures, architecture and bits of nature. I allude to these explorations without suggesting a literal reference. Front could be back, top could be bottom, what is visible, what is concealed; many layers are parts to a whole. My process allows for me to add and take way, to see, feel, respond, question and remember. I get clues from the inherent nature of different materials. Using them within the same piece, employing repetition and shifting of scales to highlight these intrinsic qualities. Surfaces reflect light or absorb it.shadows that distort or accentuate. Various patterns, colors, textures and surface treatments interact; their juxtaposition is key and often surprising. It is a way of organizing thoughts and guiding ones eye throughout a piece. What is seen depends on the light, the color the clothing that is being worn, or the mood ones in; there are multiple solutions to the same problem. It is about acknowledging a moment in time. Working with materials in hand, labor, an unfolding of ideas. The act of dressing and adorning. These expressions of nonverbal communication become a record, a reflection. They connect us individually and as a culture with our past and with our future.«
