Claire Johnston …. une dent contre son dentiste ?? – Tooth Fairy Series

Classé dans : Claire JOHNSTON (UK),COUP DE COEUR,Grande-Bretagne (UK) — bijoucontemporain @ 1:24

« The tooth fairy series is a range of jewellery that is a contemporary take on Victorian Sentimental Jewellery. I took one of my cherished, irreplaceable possessions (my daughter’s baby teeth) and created a series of jewellery from castings of her teeth. Made in silver, the pieces have a traditional form to them, and are not instantly recogniseable as teeth. The Ceramic Tooth Fairy Series follows on from the silver collection, but I have explored the scale of the teeth. This was based on the reaction of the audience to the silver range. I wanted to make the jewellery more provocative, I set out to create a dialogue between the audience, wearer and objects. The teeth are exact replicas of an original tooth that has been enlarged by either 400% or 800% through the process of rapid prototyping. » (Claire Johnston)

Etonnant ! en tout cas, ce sont des bijoux qui ont … du mordant ! ;-)
