« Wet, Glittering, Dark : Shiny, Pointy, Sharp »-
  Jewellery and Drawings in response to the Thuringer Forest

« I started traveling to the Thuringer forest in 2001, because of my obsession with glass christmas decorations. This obsession has nothing to do with christmas, but with childhood, memory, romance and loss. By 2006 I had understood enough about my obsession to start to turn it into work, which was fully realized during my residency as City goldsmith in Erfurt in 2007. This residency gave me the time to concentrate not only on the glass objects and history of this region but on the landscape, geography, architecture and atmosphere in general of the small villages were I was spending my time. The residency culminated in an exhibtion of Jewellery, drawings and photographs. The second significant body of work that then came out of this experience was show at the bavarian crafts council in 2009 under the title of  » Somewhere Else Completely ». Now over a year later, and many more visits to the region the work has become more about the forest itself and about my own romantic fantasy. This body of work , now a preoccupation for almost 10 years has always included photographs and drawings. It is also the first project that has a geographical specificity outside my own country. In a way this work has also been about coming to terms with living in Europe – a way for me to really arrive.«   Helen Britton
