Helen Britton says about her work: « That I make jewelry, drawings and paper objects and not buildings or gardens, allows me to create a very private world that accepts no compromises. To develop matter in itself, to transform it into an unpredictable way, comes from the love of materials, from the enjoyment of the simple qualities of color, texture, shape and their effect on my senses. I have always had an empathy with objects and in my practice in recent years, this specialized on collecting those awkward and sometimes ugly fragments, those hidden beauties and components that seem to be intended for a life as jewelry. I try to offer them a new opportunity, a chance to sing or to sing one last time. »

Helen Britton, invited as Artist in Residence at the Bengel Foundation in Idar-Oberstein, will be working in the Bengel Factory and at the University of Applied Sciences in Idar-Oberstein in October, November and December 2014.

Researching classic raw stone materials of this region and those transported here from her homeland Australia, along side the possibilities offered by the fashion jewellery making machines of the Bengel factory, Britton is laying down the foundations for a completely new body of work.
