Jewellery with darker edge
AN exhibition that explores the responses of jewellery artists to natural disasters and manmade destruction in the world has opened in Saltaire.
Matters of Life and Death includes sculptural work, jewellery and film and is on show at Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, Salts Mill, Saltaire, until September 25.
Lorraine Hurlstone, above models bangles by Sophie Hanagarth, winner of the prestigious Herbert Hofmann prize 2011, made of wrought ironand resembling wolf traps.
Kath Libbert, curator, said: "I wanted to curate an exhibition that reflects on destruction both natural and man-made, as this is a huge preoccupation in our world at the moment but also an exhibition that explores the possibilities for regeneration and hope and humour."
