Emily Hunziker Phillips


      Emily's newest work, "Flora Afflictions" explores the affects that disease or insects have on the aesthetic quality of plants, and questions objective botanical beauty. She utilizes precious metals or gemstones to highlight the affected area of the plant, bringing attention and perceived value to the abnormalities that would otherwise be considered defect.

      He artwork is functional as wearable jewelry, but she also aims to not just copy and recreate nature, but to celebrate the qualities of plant life that may be underrated or unnoticed.
