Sophie Main is one of the students in our class that is at Penland on a scholarship from London. Sophie's work at RCA (Royal College of Art) deals with the history of objects, collecting and cataloguing historical works and objects. I've really enjoyed watching her thinking process in the objects and sketches she's done in class.
Sophie is also part of the Moving On collective, a group of artists from RCA that created a wonderful interactive exhibition. The artists carried/wore their jewelry on ribbons and the piece was placed in a jar to protect the object but then could be taken out to show the viewer.
Once again, I just really enjoy these kinds of projects, creating an event and/or method to introduce art jewelry to the public, making art accessible and less confined. I hope you enjoy the video!Pin It
