Niamh Duddy: The Winner of the Rising Stars 2020 Award: One Year On

Niamh Duddy: The Winner of the Rising Stars 2020 Award: One Year On

Niamh Duddy is a contempory jeweller from Derry, Northern Ireland. Niamh is intrigued by the relationship that jewellery shares with the body, unlike any other art form jewellery is worn and occupies an intimate space.

Niamhs collection 'Keeping The Piece' is inspired by her upbringing in Derry and her awareness of the divisions within surround communities. Working primarily in jesmonite, if the pieces were all forced into the frames in different directions, they would not stay in place and the piece would all fall apart. However, Niamh has created shapes that, when working together, find an equilibrium and work in unison to keep the 'peace' together.

For Niamh, making was a way of exploring her world, by developing an understanding, a meaning and a creative voice. This collection stemmed from questioning the relationship that jewellery shares with the body and how wearing the jewellery becomes almost a subconscious act.
