Jewellery & Object
Practice and Aims of the Studio
Jewellery & Object explores concepts and techniques fundamental to the making of human-scale works within the disciplines of contemporary jewellery and objects.
Jewellery & Object focuses on the designing and making of small-scale to large-scale work in the disciplines of contemporary jewellery and object design.
The program engages students in conceptual and practical investigations through specific and self initiated projects designed to develop their ideas through extensive research, experimentation and the acquisition of technical skills.
A broad range of appropriate materials and processes encourage work of both a utilitarian and conceptual nature. The work itself may take the form of one-off pieces, small runs of production work to be placed in galleries and shops, design for manufacture, or commission work.
Studio Specific Facilities
Study in Jewellery & Object is supported by fully equipped casting, enamelling and metalsmithing rooms and the Wood and Metal Workshop for larger scale work.
