Statement

The miniaturized format of the jewellery form allows me to explore my ideas on an intimate scale. I seek to create evocative objects that might stir an emotional connection and thus give pleasure; not the obvious pleasures associated with the wearing of traditional jewellery but a pleasure more akin to the private enjoyment of finding an interesting stone on a walk and treasuring it as a small, unexpected, prize.

As I make I enter into a dialogue with my materials, trying to discover and explore their unique characteristics. My skill with enamel does not constrain me but serves to liberate; my knowledge of the materials gives me a fluency that allows me the freedom to investigate ideas through the combination of metal and enamel and to achieve the ambiguous and expressive material qualities I seek. I strive to attain a tactile delicacy and a weightiness that positively encourages touch. It is important to me that the pieces I create should reward the wearers close attention with an intricate and detailed surface.

Biography
Jessica trained in jewellery and enamel at Central School of Art, London. She established a studio in Bristol, England, in 1988 an divides her time between studio practice and teaching. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Having been trained in traditional enamel techniques Jessica was inspired by the unconventional approaches to enamel encountered during her involvement in a large public art project in the late 1990s. She has latterly undertaken a sustained period of research into mark making in enamel using non-traditional techniques. This, combined with investigations into printmaking techniques for enamel, formed the focus of her recent postgraduate study at UWE, Bristol, UK. 
Her current studio practice includes the production of both jewellery and larger scale enamel work. In 2007 Jessica was awarded a three year AHRC Fellowship in Creative and Performing Arts based at the University of the West of England, Bristol. The focus of the fellowship, entitled Innovation in Vitreous Enamel Surfaces in Jewellery, was the place of enamel within contemporary jewellery practice.
