Luce Artist Biography

Pavel Opocensky uses natural and synthetic materials in his jewelry, such as ivory, stone, and manufactured Corian, which he works into fragments of transparent thinness. He challenges traditional notions of “precious” materials and conventional ideas of how jewelry is experienced, creating works that are as often made to be held in the hand as worn on the body.
