From Greece, Erato Kouloubi Geometric & Architectural Jewelry

Erato Kouloubi

« Experimentation!
Forms that enter one through the other. Circles and squares.Incomplete shapes.
Metals that are mixed. Silver fused with copper and bronze, titanium encased in gold.
Expore and expand the concept of recycling. Phonecards. Colour. Semiprecious stones.Resin. A peculiar finish. That of the old one, the used one. The feeling of immediacy, of intimacy.
Forms complicated and forms simple.
Shapes anthropocentric and abstract too.
Ispiration throughout the whole life. The nature. The love. The death. » (MyPrecious.gr)

« My work is inspired by architecture and geometry. I design jewelry that assembles in an abstracted form, creating a multitude of viewpoints plus a multitude of applications. Originally what leads me in making innovative forms is that I am interested in the reflection of the viewer. »

« The Origin of Symmetry » « In this work, I explore architecture influenced by the avant-garde art movements of Cubism & Constructivism that later influenced trends as Bauhaus & Destijl movement. I design jewelry that assembles in an abstracted form, creating a multitude of viewpoints plus a multitude of applications. Originally what leads me in making innovative forms is that I am interested in the reflection of the viewer. The collection is made of gold-platted bronze, rhodium-platted bronze and oxidized silver. Bronze is cut, fold and soldered to express the three dimensions. Oxidized silver chain is used to present the bronze sculptures. »

Puis elle est passée du très lisse au « rugueux » ….

« Deconstructing the Cube » and the « Cities In Dust » :  « After I studied the austere geometry of the formal, my work led me into something different: The concept of Deconstruction. I started by deconstructing the cube (2014) .For me, deconstruction is not simply the fragmentation of the structured form, but the dematerialization of the material itself. What at the end of the process seem like a solid base, are the results of both: controlled tempering and the unexpected outcomes of experimentation with the fusion technique. Finally, the white color of the metal symbolizes the dynamics of a new beginning. »
