YOUR SPACE IS YOUR ALTAR
GENEVA LONDON NEW YORK SANTA BARBARA
As an Artist & Designer engaging in different mediums from fashion, jewelry, painting, writing, interior & environmental design to working within diverse aspects of the Alternative Health & NGO fields, B has gathered a broad spectrum of knowledge, which vitalizes her practice.
The influence of ancient cultures mixed with the most modern design concepts imports an unconventional finesse to her ideas. One of these, the ancient technique of carved cinnabar-colored lacquer jewelry & boxes has always intrigued her and in a roundabout way brought her to Feng Shui as an important addition to her design practice.
Cinnabar represents the deep, dark Earth energies of the feminine, grounding the solar energy of the masculine; the connection of Heaven and Earth. The rich, deep red, so evocative of those ancient Chinese lacquer pieces cherished by collectors, becomes a metaphor in Feng Shui’s use of this substance. In Chinese symbolism, cinnabar (vermilion) and gold are regarded as the two harmonious colours of joy and prosperity.
