The art and craft galleries on Plymouth’s Barbican have joined together to stage an open evening on Thursday 8th September between 6 and 9pm. Every one of the 13 galleries on the Barbican is taking part and will form a trail for people wanting to see the diverse range of paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery, glass and other works on display.
Here in our gallery we shall be showcasing for the first time in a gallery, the stunning new glass jewellery of award winning new designer Sara Fell, who won best new glass graduate 2011.
The ‘Precious integrations’ series is a celebration of the ‘high altar’ of femininity and of the ritual beautification that forms the essence of the dressing table. This series is a continuation of Sara’s intrigue into the hidden and precious elements of jewellery, “why do we hide away what we perceive to be our most treasured possessions”.
Taking inspiration from the glass dressing table sets of the 1920’s, Sara bestows a contemporary take on them by integrating hidden elements of jewellery such as rings, necklaces and bangles, within each of her sets.
