Recently, Karen’s work has become more conceptually based on the emergent sense of home and associated culture, promoting a sense of being, in relation to the life cycle and its many roads and journeys taken.
Mabon adopts an interdisciplinary approach towards her jewellery design work and is largely influenced by both the Bauhaus and Russian Constructivist movements of the early 20th Century. Both of which compared the artist to an engineer, arranging materials scientifically and objectively, aiming to produce artworks as rationally as any other manufactured object.
I am a jewellery designer based in Glasgow. I am currently working on ranges of jewellery inspired by cities and what they mean to us. How will our future cities look? Do we aspire to live in a beautiful future or continue in amongst restricted high rise buildings and neglected housing scheme? Do we continue to aspire towards western riches and none existent money whilst being the big man's wage slave? Or is there another way?
I work mainly to commission creating contemporary stained and architectural glass for a variety of ecclesiastical and secular buildings in Britain.
My subject matter and influences vary from Historic ruins of castles and abbeys to details of medieval glass and tile fragments found at these locations.
Katie explores the perhaps incongruous concept of creating finely crafted jewellery, of silver and semi-precious stones, from the heavy industrial aesthetic of the shipbuilding history that has moulded the city of Glasgow.
Kelly makes contemporary wooden and silver jewellery. Her pieces are heavily inspired by her hometown's fishing heritage on the far north Scottish coast. The colours, shapes and patterns she uses reflect the buoys, lobster pots and ropes of the industry.
Kevin approaches his work in an experimental way and has a strong relationship with material and process as well as the landscape he finds himself in.
Contemporary jewellery and silversmithing inspired by the structures of boats and sea-worn textures. Kirsty works mainly in silver and wood, often incorporating pieces of collected flotsam and uses hammer texturing, folding, forging and raising techniques to create a range of cutlery, bowls, boxes, jewellery and many other objects.
With a passion for architecture and the interstitial spaces created by buildings and other structures, Kirsty Fraser’s jewellery creations boast a strong emphasis on extending beyond traditional approaches to jewellery making.
Kirsty's dynamic and innovative sculptures aim to capture our true nature. Her work displays a surreal quality to them as she challenges the very essence of life. Her work focuses mainly on energy and expression .
