"Precious"
by sabine7 / September 25, 2008


Staffan Holm's Precious project is about the patina of sentimental objects. Personal artefacts often increase in emotional value, so when they break, the effect can be quite disheartening. Holm suggests that repairs be made with material worthy of the artefact, in line with its new value. The relationship with the object has not ended, but a new chapter has begun. The nautilus shell that marks the travels of a loved one is repaired with silver; all that is left of a Chinese vase is the repair material and one last shard of porcelain; a favorite wooden chair welcomes pewter to take it further; and porcelain pieces take on new life with the addition of gold plating.
