About Ekaterina Korzh : Ekaterina Korzh, a second-year MFA student in Jewelry & Metal Arts, received her first masters in Socio-Economic Geography at the University of Northern Iowa and Saint-Petersburg State University. Her first steps in jewelry making happened in Colombia where she took her first jewelry classes with Francisco Jose Pineros. Last year she took second place at the International Art & Design Competition in Florence. Her works were also chosen by Artistar Jewels Committee in 2017 to be presented at Milan Fashion Week. Also, she showed her works in "The Fourth Iowa Metals Guild Exhibition: Iowa+Taiwan" at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art (CRMA) in 2016. Ekaterina travels a lot and devotes her pieces for this never-ending geography practice.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Informed by my background in geography, my work employs an observational and inquiring perspective on the world that I retained from this education. In my jewelry, I create micro-landscapes by combining metal work with found stones, objects, and precious materials. As many geographers do, I am trying to visualize monumental objects such as landscapes into smaller scale depictions of these objects. Organic origins of the found objects that I use for my work allow the pieces to speak for themselves as if they are their own living landscapes. I often get my inspiration from an observation of a found object or material which later I will mount on a piece of jewelry. It keeps me motivated to look for new places where I can discover new objects and materials. For example, some of my pieces are crowned by geoids which are native to Iowa, where I am living right now, others embrace stones and fossils from Chile, Argentine or Russia, where I have been living or traveling.
