FROM INSECTS . Future Craft Artefacts
Lorenzo Bernardi Febres-Cordero 18 April 2015

Marlene Huissoud has used insect waste streams to create craft artifacts! She has concentrated her attention mainly in two materials: a glass technique obtained with a bio resin and “wooden leather”, a new material created IMG_1087IMG_1087out of the cocoons of Indian silkworms. With the first one she has created and presented at the Fuori Salone a collection of incredible vessels.

I am 24 years old. I was born in Ecuador, South America but I have lived most of my life in Italy. I was trained as a jewelry designer in Florence and, after my degree, I graduated as a Mint engraver and designer in Rome. This year, I started this great adventure in Creative Academy, an important experience to widen my education and my technical and artistic skills. This opportunity brings me in Milan, such an international city, a melting pot of creativity and culture. I can’t wait to have a direct comparison with the protagonists of Salone del Mobile.
