Born in Texas and trained at London's Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, Gina Melosi is an award winning designer with shows in Paris, London, and Milan. She is inspired by the broken, overlooked, and abandoned, giving ready-made found objects new life in recycled metals and ethically sourced stones.
The final installment in a three part conceptual series centered around broken glass, //CRACKED// takes a slightly different vantage point by exploring the shattered edges of glass, the negative spaces, and the cracks in between. Contrasting textures are created through making impressions into clay from the edges of broken panes of glass and ultimately casting into recycled bronze.
