Jewels Vine

Jewels Vine’s work is a continuation of his personal fascination with colour, texture and movement in objects, and his love of containers, with their mystery and promise of a chance surprise – a love which he thinks may have been influenced by childhood foraging in rusty tobacco tins in farm sheds. Jewels says, As a maker of objects, I seek to realise an idea, using any durable material that fits the task, although semi-precious metals often predominate. Learning to work with a wide ‘palette’ of materials is a necessary, although research- intensive, part of the making of these pieces.
