Ann Tiu: Alchemy
A small catalog accompanying the exhibition of jewelry, furniture, and sculptures by Ann Tiukinhoy Pamintuan at the Yuchengco Museum. The exhibition chronicles Pamintuan's transformative journey as a designer from gilding twigs and leaves into jewelry to fashioning cast metal furniture from roots—and back.
Pamintuan's line of sophisticated and thoughtful designs and excellent craftsmanship has helped propel Philippine design into the international limelight. With a design sensibility deeply rooted in respect for materials, confident shapes, and clean lines, Pamintuan is considered one of the pillars of the country’s design industry. She is a member of the Movement 8 design alliance and the first Asian woman to be included in the International Designer Yearbook (in 2002 and 2004).
