Starting with fixed, transitory and informational territories, the projects in the Shared Territories section of Creative Unions, explore human connections to place and community. They examine how a landscape, structure or institution can inform personal and collective identities - whether they can be constructed, imposed or suddenly taken away. While they often return to their own origins and stories, these designers also reveal the universality of belonging. Encompassing sites of both conflict and comfort, these projects examine how territories are shaped by collaboration and cohabitation.
PUSAKA jewellery collection by Edwin Charmain is described as "a silver filigree jewellery collection which champions traditional, master craftsmanship." To read the full article visit the link below
