Eva Burton (1984, Buenos Aires, Argentina) graduated Master of Fine Arts at the Hochschule Trier, department of gemstone and jewellery design in IdarOberstein, Germany, last January. 

Eva Burton’s body of works titled ‘When Play meets Ritual’ was inspired by the notion of play as a tool to create order and balance. For this series, Eva constructed her own game, with the field of art and art jewellery as a playground, and with a set of self-imposed rules by which she plays that game. The elements have a blunt and spontaneous appearance. Burton’s marvelous sculpture titled ‘Toy Totem’ seems to be a stackable (children’s) game. Precious gemstones are no longer recognizable as precious materials. However, the materials and shapes, and even the colours and composition reflect a well thought-out scheme and experienced hands. Come out and play and learn to discover.
