Rosie Kimber

« For my honours project titled ‘All that is Solid…’, I produced a body of work informed by the idea of Liminality. Using fragile sugar crystals, hazy pink silicone and resin casts of the crystals, alongside precious metal I explored material and their transitional stages when they are between one thing and another. To create the permanent elements in precious metal I used wire to echo the crystal forms, abstracting them to emphasise the negative space. I then hinged these together and allowed the sugar to cluster over the joins to change the final form. By relinquishing a certain amount of control of the design process the work ended up being the result of a sort of partnership between the sugar and myself. Using silicone and resin I cast these crystals to make permanent, almost perfect copies with contrasting tactile qualities, giving the wearer something to keep hold of as the original disintegrated »

« My work is informed by the mystical and unknowable aspects in the natural world and the associations we make with it. I am inspired by the fragility of sweet sugar crystal structures and the unpredictable manner in which they form. Growing sugar crystals necessitates giving over control of the design process to a material which grows unpredictably. For the wearer the crystals will change as the jewellery becomes embedded in their daily life and slowly disintegrates or chips away. From the fully formed sugar crystals I play with the sensory aspects of materials, casting multiple structures from the original.
My work stimulates the tactile senses by allowing the viewer to interact with many possibilities, all from the one original crystal structure. Using silicone and pigmented resins, I make almost perfect copies of the crystals that have contrasting tactile qualities yet appear visually similar. This allows the wearer to have something to keep hold of as the original disintegrates.«   (May 2014 – DJCAD Degree Show, Dundee)
