Gathered Pebbles

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact

Abstract

My applied research at this time looked at the re-creation of natural forms in silver, questioning the viewers concept of preciousness, by investigating the qualities of a pebble made in silver in comparison to natural stone. If one creates a pebble in silver does it enhance its worth to the viewer?The outcome of this research is a large hand raised silver bowl, which acts as a container for 20 silver pebbles. The bowl is unconventionally hammered off centre to allow the viewer to place the pebbles as they wish and therefore determine the angle of the bowl.Lesley Craze Gallery, London, is an internationally recognised applied art gallery, which specialises in contemporary jewellery, metalsmithing & textiles. To celebrate 20 years of the gallery Lesley Craze invited artists who had previously shown there to create a piece for an exhibition entitled ‘Looking: Over My Shoulder’. “Gathered pebbles’ was shown through several further exhibitions listed below.In 2008 Gathered Pebbles was purchased by the National Museums of Ireland as part of their Permanent Collection. It is on permanent view at Collins Barracks, Dublin.
