LOT is a collaborative project between three makers: Guild member and jeweller Sarah Pulvertaft, Jed Green (jewellery) and Beatrice Mayfield (embroidery).
Their work as individual makers is connected through the importance of materials, use of colour and an interest in pattern, texture and movement. Between them they use a diverse range of materials, from precious and non-precious; resistant and non-resistant; uncommon and everyday, which they transform into beautifully crafted, unique pieces.
LOT has been selected to show at Collect Open 2020 – Feb 27 – March 1, 2020.
Over a set period they will produce six brooches. Each will start a piece, which will then be passed on to the next who will respond to the given elements until all three have contributed to the piece. There will be no discussion between them during the period of making, they are choosing instead to respond to each other directly through the work rather than designing as a trio. This will throw up interesting challenges and deliver unexpected outcomes, encouraging them to work both within and beyond their normal ways and to examine their usual methods.
The resulting six brooches will be exhibited as part of Collect Open at Collect 2020 taking place at Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA.
