Creating wearable art installations

  • • Raluca has 20 years experience as a ceramicist
  • • She designs original jewellery using ceramics
  • • She focuses on technique, concept and aesthetics

Born in Romania and currently living in Tortosa, Spain, Raluca Buzura creates ceramic jewellery pieces that can be considered true works of art. The objects she makes have their roots in her college years, when she liked to create art installations in ceramics, before translating her creative ideas and vision into jewellery design. Today, her collections express the artistic maturity reached after 20 years of experience. After studying ceramics in high school, Raluca attended the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and opened a studio after obtaining her master’s degree, in 2009. Since then, she has participated in numerous projects and exhibitions and has received various awards at jewellery fairs in Europe.

She's the desire & she's the lust brooch

This porcelain, pigmented and gilded piece is part of the SHE series. The collection touches on the intimate but also problematic topic of femininity. The idea of the collection initially started as an inquiry about one's own knowledge of the complexity of the female body and quickly developed into a larger investigation into the status of women in the world. In the end, it is also an evocation of the beauty of femininity for Raluca.
