Piece created for Challenge 2022 Jewelry and Literature
Materials Mont-Blanc porcelain, pigment, silver
As inspiration for her application to Tincal lab Challenge Mia used one of her favorite books, by the Buddhist Monk Beopjeong, called “Musoyu” (Non-Possession).
Beopjeong describes how possession doesn’t know any rest. Possession creates a constant need to possess more and a constant fear of disappearance, that cannot be satisfied by any possession. Mia says giving up her desire to possess is the only way to make something truly hers, even her own work. Inspired by Beopjeongs quote "To have the whole world only when you have nothing is another meaning of non-possession”, she created the pieces for the challenge.
