Matilde Mozzanega is a jewellery designer from Milan currently based in London. Graduated from Central Saint Martins, BA Jewellery Design, she did her MFA in Contemporary Jewellery & Body ornament in Alchimia, Contemporary Jewellery School. She’s now working on Londan as a freelancer and producing her own pieces.
Her work pushes the limits of what jewellery can be and it constantly questions our contemporary idea of value and materiality which sits within the context of sustainability and recycling. She is in fact interested in the qualities of non-precious materials, how to transform and repurpose them.
Venice Design Week Jewelry Selection 2020
Title : Cardboard Cutouts
Materials : driftwood, stone, marble, bamboo and ceramic
The material goes back to ‘what it used to be’ as in an alchemical cycle for where matter goes back to its primordial state. The tension between a ubiquitous, everyday seen/used material and its physical transformation, by going beyond its limits, are the aspects that fascinate her the most about working with what can be defined the most non-precious of the non-precious materials seen in this collection.
