“I honor the humor that comes with absurdity. I draw inspiration from the Surrealist art movement, where the worlds and the unknown are one. I use the symbols of hidden worlds, life, death and the primordial. My work experiments with duality and stark contrasts. The lost-wax casting technique allows me to create detailed work, offering the wearer a different perspective from those not wearing it. The contrasting viewpoints complement with a dreamlike sentiment and explore what can seen and what is indiscernible. the pieces I make can be worn for rituals, ceremonies, or for a singular statement.” – Julianna Englander
