Crease, Crumple, Fold: A record of gestures

"You are dressed in the things you have done today, and the things you have done before. You are enveloped in material memories."

Inspired by the writing of Ellen Sampson, this collection is an imprint of touches and gestures; intentionally creased, crumpled, and folded by hand into shape - a contortion of the material’s form.

 

Formed initially with soft wax to allow the traces of use and wear to show, the pieces are then cast in sterling silver - memorializing the maker's touch.

 

These one-off blackened silver pieces are available exclusively at Nelissa Hilman store in Bangsar Village II, Kuala Lumpur.
