Story

Sahar is an Iranian artist based in Cardiff. She graduated in BA Industrial Design, and since 2010 has been applying her knowledge and skills in design and craft. She is a winner of the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts, and has exhibited in Tehran, Washington, and London. Sahar has a good proficiency in different design styles. She sees her jewellery art pieces as design subjects and approaches them as a product designers does, inspired by the Minimalism movement and Bauhaus school design theme, including architecture of that time and modern industrial furniture. The design elements used in her works are rectangular shapes and unadorned lines, geometric and pure forms. She uses cavity as an element in design rather than unoccupied space. Even the use of gems is mainly in order to make composition and establishing harmony in art pieces. She usually uses silver and she goes a beyond mere ornamentation by making minimal and pure using fundamental methods such as folding, sheet method and rolling. This result in a pleasingly minimalist look which, at the same time, shows magical and surprising element
