Mourning can be experienced not only after the death of people dear to us. It can be also linked with other types of loss: break-ups, divorces or drastic changes of the environment we live in. In this project I focused mainly on material (paper) items related to a person or place which one might miss.

POPIO is a project which can be made by either one or more people. To begin it we need to collect paper remembrances of a lost person or place: journals, photographs, letters or documents. After this step, we can begin formulating a new material by burning these items, but saving the ash. When combined with flour and water, the ash transforms into hard, concrete-like material. 

For this project few prototypes were made. The material can be both polished or raw. Jewlery itself is an item of a strong emotional value which is known for its owner, but not for people from the outside world whom we might not like to share our grief with.
