Teresa Milheiro

PORTUGAL

MY WORK IS USUALLY INSPIRED BY MY SURROUNDINGS. SOCIETY, SOCIAL VALUES, POLITICS, ECONOMICS, WARS AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS HAVE A DIRECT INFLUENCE ON THE IRONIC FORM WITH WHICH I APPROACH THESE THEMES AND DEVELOP THEM IN MY PIECES.
I CONSIDER MY WORK TO BE INTERVENTION, NORMALLY A VERY STRONG POLITICAL AND SOCIAL COMMENT.

I DO NOT ALWAYS USE THE SAME METHOD OF WORK, I OFTEN CREATE PIECES INFLUENCED BY CERTAIN OBJECTS THAT I ENCOUNTER, BUT IN OTHER WORKS I MAY DIVERGE FROM AN IDEA OR CONCEPT TO ARRIVE AT THE FORM OF A PIECE.
I DO NOT LIKE FEELING TRAPPED IN RIGID WAYS OF WORKING BECAUSE THAT INTERFERES WITH MY INSPIRATION.

A JEWEL TO ME IS SOMETHING THAT IS SPIRITUALLY VALUABLE. THE MATERIAL VALUE OF THE JEWEL HAS LITTLE MEANING.
GENERALLY WHEN I'M CREATING A FORM I DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE TARGET AUDIENCE, I SIMPLY HAVE AN INTRINSIC NEED TO EXPRESS THIS IDEA.
JEWELLERY FOR ME REPRESENTS A FORM OF EXPRESSION LIKE ANY OTHER, BUT WITH THE DIFFERENCE THAT WE CARRY IT WITH US.THAT MAKES INTERACTION WITH OTHER PEOPLE MORE VISIBLE – IN FACT, IT CAN SOMETIMES DEMAND A GREAT DEAL OF COURAGE TO WEAR SOME PIECES.
