STEPHIE MORAWETZ: NIGHT AND DAY - Ornamentum Gallery, Hudson, New York, USA


(interview by Olivia Shih.)

With a background in fashion and millinery, Stephie Morawetz playfully constructs her jewelry with bright colors, overwhelming scale, and expressive shapes—creating adornment for a future when plastic is a rare commodity, and people of mixed cultures are not afraid to speak out loud through jewelry.

Olivia Shih: You hold a BA in fashion and design from the University of Art and Design Linz, in Austria, and you’re working toward a MFA degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Trier, Germany. Could you talk about your background and education and how they have influenced your work?

Stephie Morawetz: Actually, it all began when I was seven years old. My grandmother died when I was four, and I never really knew her. My mother always told me stories about her. She was a tailor and designed some of the most fantastic clothes for my mother. My mother also told me that my grandmother was a powerful woman and at the same time got on incredibly well with people. Everyone keeps telling me that I inherited a lot from her. So I made the decision to go into fashion.
