Finally taken photos of my jewellery. These are the first pieces of silver jewellery I have made in my Silversmithing class. I’m really pleased with them! They are so shiny!
If you follow my photography blog you will already know I am starting a new project in college.
The theme of my new project is Space. But what is Space? It is not empty. The space around us is filled with air; gases which are invisible to us. I am looking at things which contain air and also how I can visually demonstrate this and solidify this invisible substance – creating, in a way, negative space.
As space/air is invisible to our eyes it is a difficult subject to collect visual research on. So far I am researching the artist Rachel Whiteread who casts the interior, or negative space, of buildings, bookshelves and other spaces.
How else can I show this invisible space? Any ideas for me or artists I should look at?
Thanks for the likes on my blog and for following! From one rookie silversmither to another! 🙂 will enjoy reading your updates. ps. love your first pieces.
You’re welcome 🙂 thank you!
These are gorgeous!
Thank you 🙂
Have you tried to draw the space between things? Look at a plant then study the space between the leaves and stem and the pattern they make.
Is this your first jewellery project? It’s really good!
Yes it is 🙂 Thank you.
I’ve done a ring since then that I am really pleased with, I will have to post photos soon, and I am currently working on a necklace based on water molecules. I am doing it in the style of Raven Hanna , it’s the most complex piece I have done so not sure how it will turn out. I’m really enjoying my Silversmithing class! 😀
This is so good for your first jewellery project! That sounds really interesting, make sure you get some photos up for nosey people like me 🙂
Thanks a lot 🙂 I’m going to post some now, just got to photograph my ring
