We are delighted present a new collection of:
Ceramics by: Cressida Borrett, Laura De Benedetti, Rebecca Ridley, Helen Rondell and Lesley Nason.
Jewellery by: Donna Barry, Rebecca Burt, Elizabeth Chamberlain, EM Jewellery and M. Kala.
Textiles by: Bonita Ahuja, Eve Campbell and Jennie Jackson.
M.Kala presents minimalist yet bold jewellery pieces. Her approach is guided by the observation that strong symbols come usually in simple shapes and repetitive patterns.
Her African background but also her love for literature inform her practice: she thinks carefully about the bounds between the components she is working with, their social and political context. Matter is the thread of her plots.
She has a particular interest in non-precious materials or objects that have carried a particular significance in pre-colonial times as well as in modern Africa. In combining them with precious metal, such as silver or gold, she hopes to enhance their intrinsic value and write a new story.
