WEARABLE SCULPTURE - JEWELLERY
Hsiao-Chi Tsai’s distinctive necklaces reference historical removable decorative collars / cuffs, but are progressively modern. Like the large sculptures these intricate body pieces play with contrasts of material, form and colour. The illusionist materials are hard to place; one piece may appear to be leather or metal belying the bold form?s surprising weightless wear ability. The contrasting colours and inversion of shapes create exciting secondary pieces when they are worn in reverse.
Tsai’s accessory range has a couture line, these pieces are created to commission via one-on-one designer / client consultations and fittings.
Tsai?s beautiful statement pieces have earned her a cult following of journalists, artists and fashion insiders. Her show stopping work continues to turn heads.
