Themed to portray the temporariness and fragility, this design concept plays with an analogy between glass formation and bubblegum‘s bubbles. Their shared breath is an expression of provocation, freshness and youthfulness.

The collection is created by a tailor-made bonze cast of my own teeth, used to chew glass which is then forged into a gold ring resembling chewing gum bubbles. There is also a glass container with my imprinted lip denoting the moment of blowing. The accompanying video showcases the process of this artistic endeavor.
