Air 2 brooch


These pieces comprise ‘containers for air’ in a wearable form. The containers are made from recycled, reformed teabags, which are relatively durable despite being ‘single use’ items of fragile appearance.
These pieces centre on the issue of pollution, particles and air quality, which continue to impact climate change; they point to a future that could find us wearing our emergency clean air supply as an accessory.
