Decouverte / COUP de COEUR : Mirka Janeckova – WHITE is WHITE

Mirka Janeckova

« I see my jewellery as a container for wearer’s emotions, memories and hopes. For creating my recent work I was inspired by surrealism and indigenous cultures.
My pieces refer to the body in an abstract way, exploring the relationship between people and their subconscious mind.
I am concentrating on using only ‘white’ materials as porcelain, silver, aluminium and textile to create playful, poetic pieces. White light contains all the others colour of the spectrum so for me it is a symbol of the unity.
I am experimenting with hybrid metal-porcelain jewellery and developing an innovative ways of applying traditional metalsmith techniques onto porcelain such as casting porcelain in place and cloisonné enamel on porcelain » (to shop at Neuner schmuck)

« La White Collection si mostra in apparenza fragile, con le sue linee evanescenti, ma in realtà -come spiega Mirka, i suoi gioielli sono tutt’altro che delicati, perché la porcellana è un materiale molto resistente che sulla scala della durezza corrisponde a 7, maggiore delle pietre dure (come i quarzi), una caratteristica che assume dopo una cottura in forno a 1200-1400 gradi. La tecnica di “cottura bianca” utilizzata dalla designer permette poi di mantenere inalterata la brillantezza dell’argento di contro al bianco opaco della porcellana, presentando così il gioiello come oggetti dal valore anche tattile, oltre che bello ed originale da indossare. » (PreziosaMagazine)
