Karen Howarth Ceramics Jewellery is a contemporary, colourful collection made from black porcelain casting slip, layered with white decorating slip and finished with a high quality ceramic decal. The jewellery collection comprises necklaces, earrings, brooches and cufflinks in four different designs. Each item is fired to a high temperature and beautifully finished to create a strong yet light and wearable piece of colourful, ceramic art jewellery.
The designs for the jewellery are taken from the artist's larger wall mounted work and maintain the detail and quality of the original artwork. Karen works from her garden studio on the edge of the Yorkshire Pennines, a landscape which is a contrast of vast open moorland, hills and valleys and woodland with meandering rivers. The work is very much inspired by a love of nature and the lines and patterns within the landscape.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
