Mirza’s work explores oxymoronic dialogue between jewelry as an accessory of embellishment and yet she challenges to change this norm and aesthetics on how traditionally jewelry was made. In her current body of works she has taken minimalistic approach towards form, color and the medium to bring forth a contemporary language of design and enhancement. Exquisitely crafted in porcelain these 3d organic forms can be seen as objects of elegance and simplicity.
