Wenhui LI

Originally a fine arts student, Wenhui Li studied for three years at the Affiliated Art school of the Guangzhou Institute of Fine Arts in China and then went on to do a further degree in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins College Art & Design graduating this summer. Her professional interest in Chinese traditional line drawing has influenced her and led to the development of her jewellery style. She is deeply attracted by curved lines and forms such as the musical instrument the lute, the architecture designed by Zaha Hadid, and all kinds of organic forms. Li believes that “Curves signify liveliness and activity. They are full of rhythm and diversity and also give people a sense of pleasure.” (Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery)

Wenhui LI describes her process :

« The way I create jewellery for this project is just like a child playing with toys. The process is full of wonder, discovery, combining and unexpectation. I don’t make pieces based on design; I make them based on passion and curiosity. I try to invent processes I cannot control (such as making salts grow on rings), I try to make things happen, I´m spontaneous and attentive, and I follow my instinct most of the time. This process of not knowing and not wanting, just playing, remaining free, being without intention, casual…and suddenly getting excited…and then recognising the point when one has to take control again, is a balancing act. I like accidents to occur during the creation process; sometimes they lead to a happy end result, and sometimes not. However, regardless of what happens, the results always bring inspiration for my creations. I enjoy such uncontrollability, as it is the key element that makes my pieces individual and unique. During the process of creating them, I focus particularly on the texture, colour and details. I want people to also wonder about the materials, feel the texture, pay attention to detail, and most importantly, feel my passion. » (august 2011) (on Sub-Studio design blog)

EXPO ‘Fantastical’ – Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, Bradford (UK) – 3 Oct.-13 Nov. 2011

« Fantastical » brings together the work of two very well known jewellers: Frances Wadsworth-Jones and Xavier Monclus and also includes exciting work by two new graduates, Wenhui Li and Sophie Castle.

Central St Martins graduate Wenhui Li creates fresh and fantastical ring structures that combine diverse and sometimes surprising materials in a painterly way, creating spectacular and extraordinary organic forms.

Brand new jewellery label Sophie Castle’s Year of the Rabbit collection is pure whimsical English eccentric: laser cut rabbit or mustachioed spectacle designs in rose or yellow gold plate.

Wadsworth-Jones’ comical yet subversive miniature creatures can be worn on the finger or the lapel while internationally renowned Barcelona based jewellery artist Xavier Monclus’ fanciful surrealist inventions appropriate pictures and objects from a childhood world (are they jewellery to play with or toys to wear?).
