We welcome you to visit the group exhibition Life’s a bench taking place in Munich during Schmuck 2010.
Bringing skills from many different arts, craft and design backgrounds this international group of makers redefine materials for use in jewellery including metals, plastics, wood, textiles and ceramics.

Operating outside the conventional boundaries of craft, and applying both traditional and cutting edge techniques to innovative choices of material, these makers have explored relationships between jewellery and the body, the wearer and themselves. The resulting work displays strong aesthetics and a critical undercurrent we are more used to seeing in fine art.
