Story:

I like the idea of movement and I imagine the figure coming to life while wearing it.
I have started by schetching different possibilities of bodies and postures.
The process starts with a block of wax, which is shaped into a torso and then the legs and arms are added. The wax can break while sculpting it and it takes hours to get the surface smooth.
I couldn’t tell how long it took me to make the first model as I usually get totally lost in time while carving.
“A piece is never finish, it is abandoned” , there is always imperfections in a piece that is hand sculpted in such a small scale, but that is what makes it more human.

I am Luciana, originally from Argentina and based in East London. I have been making jewellery for over 10 years.
I specialise in the lost wax technique and have recently incorporated enamelling into some of my work.
My pieces are figurative wearable sculptures, the hand sculpting of them a slow, intricate and instinctive process that can be obsessive.
The themes of my work are freedom, love, play and movement.
I believe the piece is finished when it finds its wearer.
