Abstract

For more than a decade Shaw has investigated repair as an aesthetic and practical approach to working with found objects. Diving Bell, Blue Lobster Claw, Neck Brace, continue this research building on found broken ceramic elements to suggest potential new narratives. Reimagining items from landfill as items with a story of precious value. The Society of North American Goldsmiths publishes annually an exhibition in print to capture the zeitgeist of practice. The 2017 edition curated by Stuart Kestenbaum, Repair and Renewal: Making Things Whole Again, confirmed the international currency of Shaw’s research. As did the selection of Diving Bell, Blue Lobster Claw, Neck Brace, for a major touring exhibition in the UK. ACJ’s 2017 exhibition consists of 2 elements: 20:20 highlights the work of 20 prominent jewellers from some of our founder members, 5 of the Chairs, and some past & current members. Each shows 2 examples: one current piece and one circa 1997. Work was exhibited at - National Centre for Craft and Design Sheffield Institute of Arts, Sheffield Hallam University; The Goldsmiths' Centre London; Vittoria Street Gallery; School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University; Crafts Study Centre, University of Creative Arts, Farnham.
