Mirek makes some of the most unique, original, interesting, beautiful jewelry I’ve ever seen. I’m going to see if there is anything (besides money) that I can trade him for a pair of his earrings!
“I live and work in Vancouver BC . My inspiration comes from the fascination with the beauty of the natural landscape combined with my sense of wonder for the magical and surreal.”
“There is an intensity that drives me to find affinity with the elements of the cosmos landscape through creating art.”
“Each piece of my jewellery is a small sculpture itself; a fusion between the elements of the earth and the images of futuristic dreams.In my arts ,the artistic mediums are primarily silver ,titanium ,bronze ,gold ,copper .”
I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures.
DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...
I am on a budget otherwise I would be tempted…love all of it..
