Mia Kwon.

Born in Seoul, Mia Kwon is a jewellery artist based in Berlin. Her creative process originated in her desire to change the way people see porcelain jewellery. Kwon makes beautiful and surprising wearable objects that contradict some of the patterns usually associated with porcelain. Her pieces are very light, easy to wear and have a very comfortable polished and warm surface, while often utilizing bright and uncommon porcelain colours. She uses established techniques like slip casting in new ways and combines the smaller elements by sewing them together to form the larger dynamic pieces. She also utilizes her metalsmithing abilities and incorporates various new techniques, like layered casting, to create rich colour patterns, resulting in works that shed a fresh, contemporary perspective on jewellery in porcelain.
