“Ivorish is the result of substantive, artistic research dedicated to the ambiguous beauty of ivory. The intended jewellery line is made from milk teeth. By pulverizing the material into a powder and manually shaping an object out of it, the concept is to create a versatile new kind of ivory without any size restrictions. With Ivorish, I want to contribute to the discussion about ivory. The public can donate milk teeth. From these teeth, a ring is made that evokes a visual association with the tusks of elephants. If the ring is worn by enough people, it becomes a piece of jewellery with a symbolic function – sustainable ivory is not only a possibility, it is a choice.”
