Full Description

In Testament Kadri Mälk leaves more than just the legacy of her prodigious artistic output of recent years. Alongside impressive new jewellery pieces and breathtaking detailed photographs, the publication conveys an emotional creative aspiration. The jewellery artist’s works are not merely decoration; they teem with expression. The unusual format and creative photography transform the book into an experience. What at first are regarded as accents of colour are assigned new values in their detail; structures, materials and cuts are visible and at once experienceable. Nature photography and sketched models add further levels of contemplation and understanding, immersing the reader fully in the wild and poetic dark world of Estonian art jewellery.

Text in English and Estonian.
