Evgeniia Balashova

I am a russian born, Glasgow based jewellery designer and maker. I attended a classical art school in Russia for 4 years and graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2016. Today continue making in my studio in the West End.

The inspiration for my work originates from office spaces and the abundance of repetitive features found within them. Stationary, computer hardware, identical furniture. These all appear in perfect order until human intervention turns them into organised chaos. My work explores this curious relationship through a combination of contrasts. Through the use of digital technology and traditional hand skills I create a balance between active and static, organic and geometric, machine and handmade. I use the cube, a reference to an office cubicle, as a basis for many of my pieces. It acts as a starting point of transformation of a basic shape into a living energetic object.
