Nora Fok’s blend of textile and jewelry art results in otherworldly pieces, implementing a variety of materials and processes for statements that resemble little else in wearable fashion. Despite their progressive, sometimes futuristic look, the pieces often implement age-old approaches: braiding, weaving, and knitting are used to string together hundreds of elements like nylon monofilament and beads.
“She is intrigued by the world around her; she also asks questions and tries to find answers to them,” a statement says. “She is fascinated by different aspects of nature, structure, systems and order, and the mysteries and magic which she sets out to capture in her work. They are often quite complicated requiring many hours, days or weeks to produce and she has the necessary dedication to see her ideas through. She likes to draw attention to the very ordinary to make something special by presenting it in her own way. Her approach is not scientific; she combines her discoveries intuitively with her personal technical skills to produce her unique pieces.”
