'Unravelling the Fairytale'

About this project

Meticulously hand crafted, electroformed and plated cuttlefish castings and wax petal carvings fused with delicate sublimated shibori create enchanting wearable sculptures reflecting contrasting elements from a childhood fairytale. Laurens fascination with juxtaposing states of perfection and flawed, of beauty and demise, are embodied in her work evoking a semblance of an ideal tale, tenuously exposing its darker side.
