Morning/Mourning was begun in the second year of the COVID pandemic when I fully realized I would not be traveling to show my work in the near future. It’s made with aluminum Nespresso® coffee capsules, polymer clay and wood. What I did have was extended time in my studio and decided to undertake this very labor intensive project. I’d drink my morning coffee and then go into my studio to both delight in the process of creating without restrictions but also to mourn all that was lost during this time.

Kathleen Nowak Tucci creates high fashion jewelry and art work using commonly discarded materials such as bicycle, motorcycle inner tubes, and Nespresso® coffee capsules. Her jewelry has appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia and was seen in Seasons 5, 6 and 7 on Netflix’s Grace and Frankie.
