Nazan Pak is the current partner of ‘elacindoruknazanpak’ jewelry studio and gallery in Istanbul, which she co-founded in 1993.
Her work is comprised of the combination and repetition of geometric shapes, mostly spheres, semi spheres and its derivations. Harmony is achieved by multiplication, extension and reduction of these three dimensional pieces. There is also an element of optical illusion that shows concave and convex forms based on incidence of light. The pieces are three dimensional yet they have the impression of sketches on white paper. She likes the challenge of combining precious and non precious materials such as gold, silver, enamel and resin.
