ROYAL JEWELLERY STUDIO

Barbara Blewman


Barbara completed a Diploma in Craft Design at Nelson Polytechnic in 1989. She is the recipient of a QE11 Arts Council Grant and Regional Award and she also has work in the collections of The Dowse Art Museum and NMIT. Intuitively linking Pacific and Byzantine influences, the simple disc forms she uses relate to indigenous adornments worn for ceremonial, ritual and spiritual purposes. Reminiscent of Byzantine enamelers, she integrates etched metal surfaces and colour. Through continuing to develop these simple yet complex processes she creates a subtle blend of alchemy and intricacy. Her processes include drawing, etching, enameling, photography and silver smithing using gold leaf, perspex, silver, copper, vitrified enamel and other media. Exhibiting both nationally and internationally she currently works from her studio in her hometown Wellington.
