HYPNOS (papaver somniferum) earrings


Caterina Sbrana, 2023

gilded silver, lost wax casting process

diameter 2 cm

These jewels are born from the long research that Caterina Sbrana has been conducting on the transformations of the landscape, on seeds and on wild plants.
In particular, with the capsules of papaver roheas, the wild poppy, and of the papaver somniferum, the artist traces animals and maps of the places of collection, a ritual work that resumes at each flowering season.
The capsules that stand out on these jewels, with at the same time an ancient and contemporary design, are some of those used to trace out the drawings and collected by the artist in the Tuscan countryside.
These earrings are unique handmade pieces that represent the memory of a flower and the deep link between human and vegetable geography.
