Crucible: Back to Base

Breakfast Talks

Wednesday 5 October 2022


Tickets: £10

Crucible presents jewellers Kassandra Lauren Gordon, Ayesha Sureya and Siobhan Wallace in a discussion on how materials other than gold and silver shape their practices and why they explore other metals and media to engage the cultural, economic, and sustainable narratives that intersect young makers today.

This is the first major event Crucible has hosted in London.

Moderated by Roxanne Simone of Crucible.

Metalsmith, Roxanne Simone is a Black British visual artist with a multi-disciplinary approach to contemporary craft. Simone’s work focuses on the reimagining of diasporic identities, gender and the imperfect Object.

Through ethnographic fieldwork and an auto-ethnographic approach, Simone’s research aims to develop Metalwork with a focus on an intersectional diasporic journey by layering contemporary art practices. Simone is firmly questioning the position of craft objects in Contemporary Craft and Art and challenging ideas around race, gender and the effects of oppressive actions and systems simultaneously.

Simone’s metalwork explores the dismantling of physical and metaphorical
boundaries within the contemporary craft, investigating through colour and
materiality. Simone is a tutor on the Jewellery and Metal Masters Programme at the Royal College of Art and a Lecturer on the BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martin’s.

The Crucible platform is curated by a collective of African, Caribbean and Asian heritage womxn artists, forging new spaces in underrepresented places for individuals and communities that identify as black, brown, Indigenous women/womxn and Q.T.BIPOC.
