Don’t miss this exhibition dedicated to architecturally-inspired jewellery, held at London’s Contemporary Applied Arts Bankside Gallery.
Monday-Saturday: 10 am – 6 pm
If you like contemporary architecture and jewellery, this is a fantastic opportunity to see how some of today’s leading jewellers interpret architectural dimensions on a miniature – and highly wearable –scale.
Coinciding with the 2017 London Design Festival, Contemporary Applied Arts is presenting a mono-themed exhibition on Architectural Jewellery with pieces by CAA maker members.
On display will be bold, modernist and architecturally-inspired jewellery ranging from geometric pieces made from ethically-sourced gold and silver by Ute Decker, brooches depicting some of the most famous landmarks of 20th and 21st century architecture – such as the Shard and the Guggenheim museums – by Vicki Ambery-Smith, and a whole new body of work by Josef Koppmann.
Jeweller Tania Clarke Hall, who works in leather, will be creating a stunning window display especially for this show and visitors will also be able to take a closer look at her cutting techniques at a demonstration. The exhibition will also be part of the recently established Bankside Design District.
Based in central London, Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA) was founded in 1948 to promote and support the making of fine crafts in Britain. CAA currently represents around 350 designer/makers covering the entire spectrum of applied arts, and showcases their work in exhibitions at the Southwark Gallery.
On Saturday, 23 September at 15:00, jeweller Tania Clarke Hall will do a live demonstration of some of the techniques she uses to create her fascinating architectural pieces. She will cut, mould and intertwine strips of coloured leather to give you an insight into how her jewellery comes to life.
