These opposites: the explosive and the perfectly still, are the extremes of an emotional landscape as vast as the universe. Like mosaic, they compose the final mural that is our identity, who we are.
Textured metal suggesting the natural world meets geometrically perfect elements such as rapid prototyped nylon, Cubic Zirconias and acrylic. The necklaces, rings, bangles and earrings that this mix of elements creates are evocative of the wide influences behind the collection.
Most pieces are ready-to-wear jewellery, but the feature pieces 'Landscape Choker' and 'Cathedral Necklace' truly explore the extraordinary grand plan behind Joao Vaz's work: the exploration of an emotional language that is simultaneously interested in the trivial, as much as the explosive and magnificent.
