I like the idea that a material is distorted. I appreciate so much those who can see over the usual and guess a second existence. From the personal side and from project view. In general, we can say that it's nice, and especially reassuring, have certainties, It's nice to know that everythings have a place and that everything follows a general order. However, when I find someone who broke my certainties or mental habits I subject the charm, I fall in love of details and I am surprised the simplicity. This is the case of Geraldine Nishi that creates concrete jewelry.
The simplicity lies in the fact that the concrete is the classical material we underneath the nose all day, not pay special attention and in most cases we talk about it in an almost contemptuous when we talk about wild urbanization (or less). How can be distant two elements as concrete and ice cream? Thousands of miles. But not in Geraldine that work in its collection made cement jewelry in the shape of pink ice cream cups white, bags with rows of white beads covered with whipped sugary flavoured… concrete!
Why this jewel designer use concrete? Nishi prefers to represent food, as you can see from her works, and everything that has to do with the world of sweets, maybe because are her favorite dishes, both because, as many, links sweet food to parties and to positive feelings and joyous that transmit the festive moments. For this type of effect has found that the most suitable material for cement was the ability to assume the form of icing or whipped cream, easy to shape and with a yield realistic interesting. Maybe because it's easy to color and with the right quantity of water can be diluted enough to resemble a gourmet food.
