This piece was originally made for a group exhibition at the Bavarian Crafts Council in Munich where Laura spent many years studying her craft. The theme was ‘textiles’ and many makers from different fields were invited to create something that reflected this theme. Laura decided to make two sets of silver underpants. A clothesline with socks and t-shirts might yet be in the making.
This pair of undies are made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. You can find out more about the importance of using reclaimed/recycled materials here.
On the spotty pair of underpants, the surface has been blackened with a natural sulphur oxide, giving it a darker finish, while the other pair has a brushed matt finish. Both pendants come with a 55cm sterling silver chain.
Laura takes great enjoyment from making work for an exhibition or a special client. It gives her the chance to experiment with ideas she might not have thought of without the opportunity and create something unalike.
If you have your own cheeky little idea that you would like to see come to life as a piece of wearable art, you can contact Laura here.
