Shan Shan Mok artist statement:
‘Shan Shan’ is my Chinese name; Word ‘Shan’ means coral in Chinese. My jewellery and object have a way been inspired by the different stages of a coral’s life cycle, form and movement. It is an important metaphor for me, to express my life experiences. One of my signature pieces is a moveable bowl; it is a bowl look like glass and it has a waving movement when you touch it.
Helen Mok artist statement:
'Secret Garden’ is a series of miniature botanic sculptural jewellery inspired by the harmony between our natural and man-made environments. The botanical nature of ‘sow and growth’ where the seeds bloom into vines that shields the concrete walls of man-built architectures; are observable instances of how delicately both nature and man-made environment obscurely intertwine and co-exist on earth.
