YORKSHIRE POST
11 June 2003

we love. . .
This idea
by jeweller Kath Libbert for a summer exhibition at her gallery which focuses on local talent. She has linked up with the Great Yorkshire Show to launch a Best in Show competition for designers. "I liked the idea of creating connections between art and agriculture," says Kath. Twelve jewellers and a textile artist have all created work for an exhibition as well as one special competition piece based on one of the Great Yorkshire Show's judging categories - the entries include items such as Pig Pairs, Wool on the Hoof and the Housewives' Choice Cattle Competition.
We love these cartoon-like silver sheep brooches by Calderdale designer Sara Tunstall and this golden honeycomb ring by Genevieve Broughton (top) from Wakefield. The Great Yorkshire Talent exhibition will be at Kath Libbert's jewellery gallery at Salts Mill, Saltaire from July 1 to August 31. The competition entries will be on display in the Art Pavilion at the Great Yorkshire Show between July 8-10.
