I was delighted when Dazzle Exhibitions invited me to submit a new limited-edition collection to be sold exclusively at Dazzle Invites online exhibition Christmas 2022.
The pieces in this collection of dyed Perspex and silver jewellery are my response to the sculptures of Barbara Hepworth. Hepworth’s abstract works are inspired by people and landscapes. Curving forms with circles and holes that can be seen as representing human forms. I was initially inspired by Hepworth’s ‘Family of Man’: a series of individual but connected bronze sculptures that represent the human figure across generations, seen on a visit to the Yorkshire sculpture park with three generations of my family.
I have created a series of gently curved, connected and balanced shapes in aqua, stone and orange tinted acrylic. Circular drilled holes are used as both design feature and integral part of the ear wires and pendant fittings.
You can view and buy these pieces at www.dazzleinvites.com until 8th January 2023.
