Victoria Ceiling Brooch
American designer and recent graduate of Birmingham’s School of Jewellery in the United Kingdom, Miriam Rowe has been chosen to participate in the Art Jewelry Forum’s “Geography” Exhibition at the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) Conference in Seattle, Washington at the end of May this year.
“Taking geography as its theme, this exhibition, curated by Susan Cummins and Mike Holmes and organized by the Art Jewelry Forum, demonstrates the global nature of the contemporary jewelry field and the diverse ways that jewelers react to their environment. The exhibition is a celebration of the amazing variety of the natural world and humanity’s part in it, and a demonstration of the unusual ability that jewelry has to identify culture and place in a rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected world. This is Geography.” *1
Miriam’s Victoria Ceiling Brooch will be represented at the exhibition by Crafthaus, an online social network of professional craft artists based in the United States. Brigitte Martin, founder and editor of http://www.crafthaus.ning.com and a gallery member of the AJF chose Miriam’s work from the network’s over 2000 members: “Miriam’s pieces are directly related to the exhibition’s theme. When I was approached by the AJF to suggest artwork from my network’s members for this show, I immediately thought of her. Miriam’s work is both beautiful and well-made. Executed in an unusual material, her brooches are directly influenced by her surroundings and personal experiences found in her current environment. A perfect fit for ‘Geography.’”
The Victoria Ceiling Brooch (pictured) is inspired by the interior of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, one of the Miriam’s favourite places to spend the day. On being chosen to exhibit at SNAG, Miriam says, “I am so excited about being a part of the Geography exhibition. Cultural geography plays a huge role in my jewellery designs: the rich history of European art and design inspires me, and moving to Britain has allowed me to immerse myself in the art and objects of their culture.”
