The Pearl earring is developed to search for the boundaries and similarities in cultural elements and techniques . It plays with classic item the Pearl Earring that is central in the Dutch painting ‘Girl with the pearl earring’ by Vermeer in contrast with the traditional Japanese Raden technique. In the Raden technique pearl is being inlayed on a base shape. In research it turns out that the pearl earring is silver in the actual painting and therefor we chose for a silver bowl inside the transparant bowl. For the broken ceremics is chosen to play with the concept of Kintsugi and it questions what defines beauty or how we value our products.
This technique can also be used to repair your broken products such as a vases, jewellery pieces etc. We provide a repair service that with these beautiful ancient techniques will bring your beloved items a second life.
