I am currently doing a work placement with the super lovely and talented jewellery artist Carina Chitsaz-Shoshtary. Carina has an exhibition starting next week as part of Schmuck week in Munich and I am helping out with the setting up of her show. The experience has been really great so far, I have had the opportunity to look around The Academy of Fine Arts whilst Carina was having work photographed, which was amazing. I also went to her house in the Bavarian countryside, where I got the chance to see her work up close and talk about her processes and practice. As a relative newcomer to art jewellery it has been incredible for me to gain an insight into how Carina works. Her time at the academy has given her a free, intuitive way of working which I feel is very inspiring.
