The series “Shadow” is an investigation into the symbols what naturally form out of the ready made materials what I use. The set of jewellry consists of small scale ready made objects what are pressed down into the shadows.The materials what I used are found household items made out of iron or stainless steel. Like screws, cutlery, keys etc. I combined these objects and powerhammerd them down into the silhouettes where remains some characteristics of the previous items. Although the pieces have lost their functionality and became a two dimensional remains of themselves.           
The whole collection is about how trivial symbols start to communicate with each other on a strange comical way. A collection of brooches what are strongly connected to eachother draw up a surreal alphabet what speaks a story of itself.  It does not dictate its meaning, but gives the viewer a lot of clues for interpreting.
