Matilde Mozzanega, our graduate this year at BA Jewellery Design is one of the winners of this exciting prize. Matilde transforms a man-made material into an organic form. In a kind of reversed alchemy that uses resin, her work creates a state-change; the end-product is an entirely new substance. Pitting nature against machine, she hardens paper so that it feels like rock yet looks like driftwood.
