SALTS MILL CELEBRATES
Kath Libbert celebrates her gallery's 10th anniversary at Salts Mill with an exhibition featuring jewellery based on the theme of the 'mill in miniature'. 'The mill is physically such a wonderful place - the celebration is about this wonderful location as much as anything' says Libbert. 'People have come up with really innovative and diverse pieces.' Czech jeweller Blanka Sperkova's Alpaca neckpiece (below) made from finger-knitted coloured wire, for example, references the alpaca wool originally used in the mill. Cathy Miles's wall piece in her trademark twisted wire depicts mill owner Titus Salt and his villagers as a flock of starlings. A prize of 500 will go to the maker considered best-in-show by a jury chaired by Dorothy Hogg. But the public also get to vote on their favourite work and the winner will be commissioned to create a piece celebrating the restored mill's 20th anniversary next year.
