Vessels and Brooches
by Floor Mommersteeg
Floor Mommersteeg constructs airy, transparent shapes out of nylon wire, a strong and sturdy material with a glasslike sparkle, which can be tinted in the hues of the air and the sea.
I trained as a goldsmith at Vakschool Schoonhoven and specialised in jewellery design at Gerrit Rietveld Academy.
My works feature nylon thread. I transform this straightforward material into intricate, flamboyant pieces. I like to restrict myself to one specific material to explore its full scope.
A wide range of techniques, from melting to connecting and flattening, result in artfully detailed networks.

Opaque or in progressions of ethereal hues each exuberant item is an experiment in transparency, structure, and scale. The jewellery may look fragile as glass and as light as a feather, but the material and design are solid and strong. She restricts herself to one specific material to explore its full scope.
A wide range of techniques, from melting to connecting and flattening, result in artfully detailed networks. Poetic, with organic leaf shapes, or all Cubist angles, these delicate structures translate into robust, eye-catching forms when worn or placed as objects.
