PHILIP SAJET // UGLY // NIELLO
Make something which is Ugly, (you will see how difficult that is!)
it is based on the following thought.
«What fascinates about beauty is that it borders so closely to what is perceived as Ugly and the exciting contradiction is that if one wants to find new forms of beauty, one must actually tap into the source of ugliness.»
Furthermore, when one starts doing something Ugly, something wrong let’s say you lose your fear of failure as one starts from a «failed» position.
In addition, participants will learn the surface decoration technique, Niello, which they can use the workshop and in future jewelry projects
