Ignasi Cavaller

I am obsessed with memories. I fear to forget who I am and where I come from, my roots. I do not want to deny the evolution of my self, but I also want to keep my origins as close as possible.

I try to trigger my memories through the materials I use, looking for connections with my past and my ancestors. Asking my self if what I remember is true or is just another random creation of my subconscious.

I based my collection on a simple but meaningful jewelry object, the locket, creating physically useless containers to give my self the feeling that I am keeping my intangible memories in it.

To create these pieces I used materials collected in my hometown, as wild olive tree wood, limestone and antique wall plastic, combined with the materials I got in the place I was working on  the collection, like landscape jasper stone, iron...

The process is what I actually enjoy, the investigation of the technique and how to apply it to the material. In this project I used thermoforming for the wall plastic, creating my own machine to be able to process it. On the other hand for the stone I used cutting, carving technics, the same for the wood just with different machinery.
