Scintilla: the summer 2014 collection

Scintilla Launches in Liverpool

Three years ago, I launched a new collection of wearable art at The Swoon Gallery in Hammonds Plains. It was exciting. It was successful, but now it’s time to reveal a new collection closer to home.

As you know, I work primarily in silver clay, hand forming the pieces and firing them in a kiln, as I once did as a potter, but on a much smaller scale. The result is jewellery in fine silver (.999), each piece unique.

But I’ve been exploring new mediums, this new collection includes work in bronze and also knitted wire.  For that I had to research early Greek and Roman techniques.”

There are 60 pieces of jewellery/wearable art in this summer 2014 collection I've called Scintilla. I like the word, it means, among other things, a spark of a feeling, and that is what started the inspiration for the work more than six months ago.”

I've been represented at The Lilieth Boutique on Main Street, Liverpool, Nova Scotia since 2013, and that is where I’ll be on Saturday 28th June 2014 from 2 - 5 pm launching Scintilla. Everyone is welcome.
