In this exhibition, Thompson-Royds will show recent and brand new pieces from two series: Natura Morta and Against Nature, where the work brings to life the “unnoticed”.

About the artist
An artist and jeweler of international renown, Thompson-Royds work is included in prominent collections in Europe and the US, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, CODA Museum, National Museum Zurich, and Museum of Fine Art Houston.

Christopher first became passionate about making jewelry while at school at the Royal College of Art and attributes his interest in nature – and the depiction of it in his work – to his upbringing in the English countryside. His work, influenced by the Victorian Natura Morta studies of plants, immortalizes delicate flowers and plants of different varieties in outlines of gold, precious stones, diamonds and showcases his mastery of metalwork.
