Corrina Goutos won the ITS Sustainability Award last July. A native of Upstate New York now based in Hamburg Germany, she is a contemporary jewelry artist whose work deals with themes of consumerism. Her documentation of post-consumer waste in urban environments directly informs her studio practice. Fascinated by the wavering barrier between products of mass production and the forces of nature, she sees this uncanny fusion as evidence of life’s ability to prevail. Her work is in itself crafted from fragments of material culture, through experimental casting and connections; her studio practice reanimates a range of household materials. Whilst addressing our planet's most pressing issues, Corrina also quarrels with the ambitions of capitalist society.
She is internationally active in the field of contemporary jewelry, having recently lectured and presented a solo show during the largest contemporary jewelry fair in Munich, as well as exhibited throughout Europe as well as in China, Canada and the USA. She was recently spotlighted by Vogue Italia and Vogue Germany, by CURRENT OBSESSION Magazine and Klimt02, as well as selected as a finalist for the Art Jewelry Forum’s Annual Award
