Design Creative Of The Week: Drew Markou [Ceramics/Jewelry/Glass]
The hottest new talent of the week brought to you by PSFK x Arts Thread. This week we share insights from a jewelry MA that uses silversmithing techniques to create unique vessels for intricate plants.
Life can be found in the most inhospitable of places. Even in a highly urbanised environment, the smallest of plants can somehow take root and survive. This sentiment of ‘life goes on’ has been expertly visualized by our Creative Of The Week, Birmingham City University School of Jewelry MA student Drew Markou.
Why we like him: Using gilding metal, stainless steel and road-line spray paint, Drew has created bold, structural vessels which can stand alone as a piece of art or work as a functional object in which plant-life can grow.
