Fie von Krogh / Abigail Connell
Can you guess what these flowers are made of?
What has both a metallic glint and a flexible quality?
It's my new favourite thing in the world: gilded plastic! As plastic is created from precious oil, Norway's Fie von Krogh wonders if "perhaps we should regard plastic as one of the most precious materials that we have." Expanding on this idea, she covers plastic in gold- and silver-leaf to create "a synergy of gilded plastic" (a reversal of her early jewellery, which featured laminated metal). Visit her site for more gorgeously pleated work!
