OWN ART
15th June, 2012

Flourish at Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery is like the Olympics of the jewellery world, bringing together a whole host of fantastic makers from across the globe! It runs from 12 July – 30 September 2012 and Own Art is available in the gallery on purchases.

With an international reputation for showcasing the best in radical contemporary jewellery, Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, based at Salts Mill since 1996, marks her sixteenth birthday with flair! Flourish exhibits a fantastical array of art jewellery selected from around the globe.

Dutch artist Nina Sajet’s creates surreal transformations of cabbages and sprouts into fine porcelain whilst South Korean, Seulgi Kwon, creates delicately tinted intricate silicone organisms that come to life when touched and worn.

Mallorcan/German Francisca Bauza’s textile inspired works present vibrant enamelled floral necklaces whose folds in metal and crimped edges mimic material; Yu-Ping Lin from Taiwan creates playful Origami inspired textile brooches that mutate into bracelets and back again.

100 international jewellers involved with the gallery over the last sixteen years have been invited to each enter an exuberant celebratory ring into a flamboyant competition called FlourishRing!

Visitors to the gallery will be able to vote for their favourite by trying it on and being photographed modelling it. These photos will then become part of a growing installation on the walls of the gallery. The FlourishRing that gets the most public votes during the exhibition will win £250.
