The Scottish Gallery presents Duality – an exhibition showcasing new work in both precious metal and aluminium by Jane Adam.
Jane Adam is a leading British contemporary jeweller, who has an international reputation for her work in aluminium, a field in which she revolutionised contemporary practice and gained many significant awards. Her work in fine metals is gaining her even greater recognition. Jane is a pioneer for contemporary jewellery, not only as a designer and maker but also with her work within the field, with organisations such as Crafts Council; Birmingham School of Jewellery; Association for Contemporary Jewellery; and Cockpit Arts – of which she is currently a trustee.
About her work, Jane says “I experiment with materials to explore their inherent qualities. Rather than imposing my own preconceptions upon them, I then set out conditions in which they will behave in a certain way. This approach gives my work a quality that relates to natural forms and to the way they change and grow. I aim to create pieces that extend traditional jewellery values: beauty, femininity and preciousness.”
Duality will take place from 2nd May- 2nd June at the Scottish Gallery.
