She has been exploring the possibilities of 3D printed nylon ever since, playing with scale, textures, tactile and kinetic qualities of the material. Evgeniia’s metalworking skills allow her to merge 3d printed nylon with Sterling silver and gold, creating unique compositions and colour combinations. She presented her intriguing collection at the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Fair in London in 2017 and she continues to exhibit regularly in the UK and abroad.
