Using pieces of body to adorn other bodies helps us appreciate the joy that comes from the acceptance of our 'Thingness', as the '70s contemporary artist Paul Thek defined it, influenced by his visit to the Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo.
The Thingness collection is inspired to the artist's work and features eyes, boobies, teeth and legs. The Thingness collection is deadly serious but looks fun.
This is the Eye Key Ring, to always keep an eye on your keys.
[For the worried ones: our glass beads are made of solid glass and are hard to break, so do not worry about the impact with your keys, or the floor.]
These are my deep brown eyes, I’m spreading them everywhere, keeping an eye on you. As the eyes of ancient dolls, these eyes are handmade out of glass, making each of them slightly different.
Murano Glass has an incredible variety of colours, but it was not realistic and lively enough. I made rods of glass contaminated with other materials, to create every time a unique pattern.
