These hair work is come from vintage jewellery made by hair and metal. They show the interesting pattern create by hair inside the glass. I think the idea of hiding the hair inside the glass remind me of the specimen of some creature. For example, some people like collect a lot of specimen of insect, and keep them for a long time. So I think the artist just present the value of the hair through this hair jewelley.  And what also attract me is the pattern made by hair, I think is really delicate and will be one of the point attract the audience.

Chain

When I walk on the street outside and want to do some primary research. I noticed a series of chain hanged on the pillar, which remind me of the hair braiding texture. Each ring link with each other, And they just hard to separated.

Tufted Necklace

This jewellery is made by Caroline Boradhead. Her work neckpiece is made from silver, wood, dyed nylon monofilament. This jewellery piece have really nice colour, and because of the Rotary screw shape created by the nylon, the colour have the gradual change. The material remind me of hair texture. So I think dyed nylon can be one of the material references of this project.

Afro-Carribean hair

These are some materials I found in the Afro-Carribean hair shop, when I was doing the primary research. The whole shop just sell many different kinds of fake hair, and I pick up some of them I like and brought them for materials. For me I really like curly hair, they show  funny texture, like noodle. And really flexible and elastic. They are processed by hair curler. And there are also have different braiding hair, they remind me of some handmade technique, for example, twisting or knitting.

 This artist is famous for it huge hair sculpture. In this collection of hair sculpture, she only like to use one material----hair. And the hair is always the similar colour, just like the natural real hair. I think is it really amazing that she can only use hair to construct different shape of structure, though some of them are quite difficult. They just come out the exactly shape she want. The first image is the sculpture that use the human hair and built on the people head. What amaze me is the sculpture is build by part of the body.

The hair style of the african braiding hair has a long history, and it still really popular until now. They braid all their hair together really tight.

Maurizio Anzeri hair sculpture

The hair sculpture is the most famous work of the artist Maurizio Anzeri. He used long ropes of human hair as the main material to create the huge sculpture with different shapes and form. I think I can learn some techniques from this artist and refer to how he use hair to become 3D interesting shapes. I like he using hand-stitched method to build up the hair. Just become really stable like an installation.
