Jewellery and Silversmithing at the 2013 ECA Degree Show!

The ECA  (Edinburgh College of Art) 2013 Degree Show closed Sunday (9th June) and I wanted to take the chance to share some of my favourite pieces from Jewellery and Silversmithing collection with you all!

First up, Kirsty Stewart! Inspired by nature (flowers, feathers and leaves) Kirsty’s work has a beautifully contemporary feel through combining precious metals and gems with plastics. Vibrant and gorgeous.

Kelly Munro‘s collection is inspired by the fishing industry of her hometown on the North Coast of Scotland. Beautiful colours, textures and intriguing use of materials abound.

And now, some silversmithing! Polly Collins‘ Slow Dining collection.  Described by the artist as “tableware we are friends with”  Polly considers a world in which we are friends with our utensils, where we want to spend time with them and to nurture them, to take the time to slow down from our busy lives and hectic schedules.

Of great interest to me was Emily Martinelli’s work which was inspired by visual representations of the internal human body. It’s very striking, the forms intriguing, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of her work.
