I take great pleasure in transforming my experiences into metaphors, adding a romantic –sometimes ironic- view to those slight details that take place in our daily life.
The mixture is what fills me. I want to find the connections in the opposites and make them engage in a dialogue. Make them dance, grow apart, get close, play. My pieces are like a magic pocion that combines various elements, coming from diverse harbors and corners. They are collages, assemblages through which I intend to reflect my own world.
My way of composing is seated in playful, instinctual bases. I go around smelling the colors of a homely landscape, seeking for that “welcome home” feeling, seeking for my Playground, that liminal space where everything is possible.
Reversal and inversion, exaggeration, paradox, playing with boundaries, playing with meanings, playing with infinity, playing with space, playing with time... This is what a Human does... This is the Homo Ludens.
Handmade is the new black
Every single piece of jewellery is handcrafted in Eva Burton's studio, Flashera Lab, located in Bilbao, Spain. From the idea to the craftmanship until the final jewel, Eva Burton brings an artisanal way of working with a contemporary approach. Creating unique pieces and limited and on-going edition jewels she aims to spread through the world her portable messages, pieces of jewellery that irradiate a positive feeling, which will wrap you with the Rainbow vibes.
Each piece of jewellery mirrors the process of an object made entirely by hand. By choosing to purchase artisan work, you are supporting a craft and design community, and not only that: it is one of the keys that will open the door to change in the consumerism society. Handmade is the perfect match plus it will add that special touch to every outfit. No lipstick needed: Handmade is the new black! Oh Yeah
