Eunmi “Mia” Kwon

Porcelain is often associated with precious tableware and tea sets. With my jewellery I want to bring this unique elegance of porcelain closer to the people. One important element of my work is to make this precious, care requiring feeling of porcelain wearable. To preserve the unique feel of porcelain, I often use pure white, polished Mont-Blanc porcelain paired with minimal shapes. In my work I want to merge this traditional elegance of porcelain with the dynamic characteristics of fabric. Many of my pieces resemble clothing parts like collars and hems and also follow the flexible character of fabric. By attaching these fabric features to porcelain and of cloth shapes to jewellery, I aim to blur the borders between these elements and concepts to create an uncommon, contemporary perspective onto porcelain jewellery.

I met Eunmi “Mia” Kwon during the last edition of JOYA in Barcelona where I saw in person her jewels made of porcelain with repeating modules that create her articulated necklaces. Recently she participated in the group exhibition Contemporary Jewel Illustrated at La Basilica Galería Temporary Exhibitions in Barcelona.  I invite you to visit her website and discover her work.

Vaig conèixer a la Eunmi “Mia” Kwon durant la passada edició de JOYA a Barcelona on vaig poder veure les seves joies fetes amb porcellana i mòduls que es repetien tot creant collarets articulats. Recentment va participar en l’exposició col·lectiva Contemporary Jewel Illustrated a La Basílica Galeráa Temporary Exhibitions de Barcelona. Us convido a visitar el seu web i descobrir la seva feina.

    It is nice to see that EunMi has conquered the consideration of international professionals and galleries, after presenting for the first time her work Likeleaf#7 at Gioielli in Fermento 2013 Torre Fornello Award (held in Italy last year) and winning there a special mention by Joya Direction, member of Jury and according to the favour of all the jury committee of the Award.

    Wishing all the best to the candidates of 2014 edition – the Awards will be assigned next Sunday.. stay tuned!!
