50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship
At the third annual Elements festival in Edinburgh two jewellery experts, curator and writer Amanda Game and designer and teacher Professor Dorothy Hogg MBE, have curated 50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship.
They have invited 50 artists and designers from around the world to contribute a work, or series of works, to the exhibition. Each artist has been invited on the basis of their ability to balance interesting ideas, skillful craftsmanship and a fresh and exciting approach to a wide range of materials and techniques. From the chp…? collection Gijs Bakker’s Peace ring and Tord Boontje’s Cut Here tattoo have been included in the exhibition.
All works reveal qualities inherent in the chosen title, taken from a book of that name published in the 1940s by Salvador Dali.
