« Marion explores the relationship between natural and human worlds by combining silver, gold or bronze with natural elements such as mother-of-pearl or felt. …..
I am inspired by my surroundings but also by the Japanese culture and the «Wabi-Sabi» philosophy: the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. I like leaving space to the unexpected and let the materials express themselves.
My techniques include the lost-wax casting and the casting from natural items into silver, gold or bronze but also soldering, hand piercing, traditional chasing techniques
I combine precious and non-precious metals with mother-of-pearl and textiles as I am very interested in the propensity of felt to highlight the coldness and the stiffness of metal.
 All my pieces are handmade, either one-offs or small series, using recycled or Fairmined metals wherever possible, as I am very much into the idea (and the actions) of living on this planet with a minimum impact on the environment and on the life of mining labourers. »

   Raluca Buzura Solo Exhibition « IRREVERSIBLE

*impossible to return to a previous condition
Each human being lives for himself and takes his own actions, but as soon as he does it, this action, committed at a certain moment in time becomes irreversible and makes itself a part of the history. Therefore, my whole work defines the irreversibility of the actions I chose to take and of the material itself: once acquired a certain shape, at the end of the process, it cannot go backward, it becomes permanent. »
Nothing we do is inevitable, but everything we do is irreversible” -Joy Williams

About the artist:
———————————–
I attended the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, department ceramic-glass-metal, and then, from 2007,
I followed master in the same section.
During the studies, my works were in the installation area, participating in various projects and exhibitions. Since 2009, main focus becomes contemporary jewelry design.
My interest in jewelry may also come from the fact that this area has not been given much attention. Frequently, people use to see it only as an over plus brought to the human body, that has a value depending on the material used. Therefore, it was also a challenge to change viewer’s angle and to reveal an alternative, and more precisely that jewelry can be considered a work of art in its own right, having an artistic understanding, concept and message that can cover a wide range of fields. I continued to work by maintaining a preference for ceramic materials, due to the transformation of the material from one state to another: once acquired a certain shape, it can’t return to what it was before.
I like to combine seemingly fragile ceramic material with metal hardness or the warmth of a fabric, then to submit the form to compositional experiments that create the most expressive side of my creations. My work is a translation in porcelain of my personal experiences, trying to obliterate these traces during the process by simplifying the boundaries between real and abstract, in a swirl of colors and lines waterfalls from which are foreseen flashes of gold. The result of these experiences I like to think that is a legacy, a proof of my existence that reflects on the society, making it if not better, at least more beautiful and trying to rekindle the gap between public and art, by presenting a variety of aesthetic shapes and ideas that could remove it from the serial area.
