about

O mně

Adéla Schicker studovala v Praze na UMPRUM v ateliérech malby a šperku. Její uměleckou dráhu nasměrovala rovněž studia u konceptuálního šperkaře Vratislava Nováka na plzeňské Fakultě designu a umění Ladislava Sutnara a stáž ve Velké Británii na Sheffield Hallam University. Její šperky jsou vyhledávané pro svou nekonvenčnost a intimní poselství.

 

Zaměřuji se zejména na tvorbu prstenů, které vnímám spíše jako drobné umělecké objekty. Promítám do nich malířský přístup skrze výhradně ruční práci s voskem, hrou se strukturou, kompozicí, kontrastem povrchů. Tvořím kolekce šperků na základě témat, která mě fascinují. Věnuji se také zakázkové tvorbě zásnubních a snubních prstenů. Pro páry, které se chtějí do prstenů „otisknout“ vytvářím unikátní šperky na základě jejich společného příběhu.

 

Od šperku chci víc, než líbivost, hledám význam.

About me

Adéla Schicker Doušová studied painting and fine jewellery in Prague at Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design. Her artististry has also been influenced by her studies under conceptual jewellery designer Vratislav Novák in Pilsen and at Sheffield Hallam University in United Kingdom. Her jewellery is sought-after for its offbeat approach and intimate message.

 

I deal predominantly with rings perceiving them as single statuettes. I make collections based on motives that fascinate me. Simultaneously with creating collections I also create custom made engagement and wedding rings. I design unique pieces based on the story of the couple.

 

There is more to jewellery than merely pleasing the eye, I seek concept.
