Winner of NCCD’s Innovation Award at Lustre 2016, Jen V Wright presents her graduate collection.
Graduating from Birmingham City University’s School of Jewellery in 2016, Jen’s current collection is inspired by various forms of documentation, including some pieces that include personal draft notes. Rather than using paper Jen writes notes on plywood, and instead of throwing notes that are no longer needed away, she laser cuts the wood and creates wearables, giving her once important notes a new lease of life. Other pieces focus on the marks made through the process of making them.
Jen combines wood, metal and fabric to create her pieces, and highlights textures and the beauty in interesting markings that can build up through the making process. From the handwritten qualities and the colours created by heating the metal, a collection is created where every piece is unique.
