ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Andreea Braescu

My name is Andreea Braescu. I am a visual artist, and I work with porcelain to create bespoke light sculptures. My wish is to breathe life into interior spaces, bringing the feeling of harmony and peace that nature gives us when we are outdoors, blissful and free.

I am constantly inspired by the beauty and complexity of the natural world, especially the way it creates harmony through apparent randomness. Every leaf on a tree is unique, yet together they create a pattern that allows each one to capture the sunlight it needs to flourish and grow.

This is why I consciously erase regularities and manufacturing conformity from my work. Each element is unique, meticulously crafted with an individuality and form all its own.

I follow the philosophy of emotion-driven design, striving to create a feeling of natural warmth and lightness that nourishes both heart and spirit.

I work with fine bone china, which is an especially translucent phosphatic porcelain. Although a notoriously difficult material, its ability to capture and reflect light with such softness and warmth captivated me. When fired, its fluid lines create a structure that is incredibly strong, yet beautifully delicate.

I am deeply indebted to the craftspeople and technically brilliant artists who work with me and help breathe life into my vision. Every day, we strive to capture the essence of living nature and constantly push the boundaries of what’s possible, for materials and for technology.

Concept

All the pieces in my first collection are inspired by the leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba. This ancient tree has thrived throughout history and is a potent symbol of vitality and longevity.

The Ginkgo Collection taps into the principles of living nature and the life-sustaining relationship between sun and tree. Each individually-crafted porcelain leaf is positioned exactly, to capture and reflect light in a particular way, mirroring the dynamic harmony nature itself creates.

In using natural moss and flower backdrops, our aim is to weave together the dream-like quality of the natural world with the handcrafted. Magical and elemental, this combination perfectly conveys the collection’s vision: to illuminate and help space blossom, with energy and serenity.

The collection comprises both chandeliers and bespoke installations. Bespoke pieces tend to be larger and are completely unique, specifically tailored to work in a particular space.
