"The Untitled – Cosmos & Spoons" 2009 Installation, gold plated forged iron.

I make jewellery because, 4,000,000,000 people on this planet mark their love with rings; rings that look like zero and with those, they make sure of their continuity. For the ancient Greeks, danaka, a golden coin, was the payment for the transition of the soul to the “other world”.
But is this not the destiny of the artists as well?
To create and pre-pay with the work they leave behind?
