Grace Horler. Hand Piece: Emergence 2, 2018. Silver. 5.5 x 5 x 6.5 CM. Photo by: Elle Hardman. From series: Specimen. The immortality of metal, stone and rock continues to capture me. I use such materials with innovation, using unrestricted methods such as melting, wax moulding and cuttlefish casting to create indiscriminate forms through immediate results. I seek to find the balance between glorifying the materials through craftsmanship and leaving them untainted.
. I wish to represent the graduation of raw material through to what the consumer would see, triggering thoughts and connotations of mining and the original qualities of the materials before human intervention. Mining and sourcing are such essential steps within making jewellery and I wanted to create a collection that celebrates this. Rejuvenating materials such as clinker, tarmac and fossil into my pieces: constantly questioning what makes something valuable. Being fully captured my material matter making sense of the world of jewellery through the exploration of how traditional and alternative materials alike can be manipulated.. Grace Horler

Intro
Amiss a time of change the jewellery girls of Farnham UCA come together to present a diverse, miscellaneous and eclectic range of skills - Treading the Fine Line.
 

Artist list

Xuang Fang, Grace Horler, Anna Peake, Tamzin Schneeberger, Louisa Warren
We discuss where tradition meets innovation and where staying true to craftsmanship breaches the gap into the unknown. When to honour tradition and when to challenge convention. Constantly questioning the boundaries of jewellery and the ever-merging definitions. Despite studying under one roof, in a workshop no bigger than a swimming pool we couldn’t have all taken more opposite paths allowing ourselves to truly indulge in what inspires us as individuals the most.

Anna Peake. Object: Objet d’art Map, 2018. Patinated copper.. 8 x 2 x 8 cm. Photo by: Anna Peake. From series: Contour Collection.  Anna creates representations of places close to her heart using contours of the land. From wall murals to jewellery and wood to silver she produces topographical works of art. Anna’s work offers a new perspective on the container within which we live our social lives, putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis by using geographically correct information. She assembles an interpretation of space that helps one understand how they see his or her world, how they interpret their everyday human actives that take place within it.
. Anna’s working methodology employs the traditional processes of lost wax casting colliding it with the modern digital technologies of laser cutting. Transcending the boundaries of 21st-century traditional craft making she participates in the debate of the digitally handmade movement.
. Entranced by one’s connections and emotional ties to specific places which play major roles in life and the personal connection between the owner and the work. She explains it as “creating art with the layers of your life”. Originally her inspiration came from the exquisite landscape of Wales in which she grew up. However, most recently Anna has applied her methodical way of working to create a collection inspired by the contours of Farnham nestled in the rolling Surrey Hills where Anna currently studies..

Tamzin Schneeberger. Piece: Minotaur, 2018. Sterling silver, antler.. 8 x 5 cm. Birds, horns, the human anatomy, the galaxies beyond and far more than your imagination can stretch to. Tamzin tells stories indulging the weird the wacky and wonderful, setting the mood to create an immersive experience. She creates fun, fantastical fashion accessories toying with emotions of attraction and repulsion. She combines classical metalsmithing techniques such as chasing and repoussé with contemporary designs and materials. Tamzin’s designs are inspired by figurative surrealism and natural iconography..

Louisa Warren. Piece: The Centerpiece, 2018. Silver, enamel.. 25 x 15 x 25 cm. Photo by: Louisa Warren. Louisa syndicates traditional jewellery techniques such as vitreous enamel, stone setting and piercing to create pieces that voice craftsmanship exactness. After laborious research and experimentation, she has found equations and that enable her to realise her botanical fantasies. Intrigued by jewellery from a young age, the precious materials and skilful workmanship of its heritage drive her passion for perfection in every element of her work. Extensive and methodical in her research, she has been able to gain an in depth understanding of a range of skills and processes that allows her to explore ever more complex pieces all the time. .
