Jane AdamBorn: 1954
Place of Birth: London
Jane Adam is a leading British contemporary jeweller, who has an international reputation for her work in aluminium, a field in which she revolutionised contemporary practice and gained many significant awards. Her work in fine metals is gaining her even greater recognition.
‘I experiment with materials to explore their inherent qualities. Rather than imposing my own preconceptions upon them, I then set out conditions in which they will behave in a certain way. This approach gives my work a quality that relates to natural forms and to the way they change and grow. I aim to create pieces that extend traditional jewellery values: beauty, femininity and preciousness. My work explores female sensuality, both in the nature of the forms themselves and in the way they feel when worn. By becoming part of the wearer’s experience and expression of her self, my jewellery is transformed and completed.’ - Jane Adam, 2016.
Public collections include:
The Goldsmiths’ Company, London; Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
Jane Adam was the subject of a solo exhibition - Beyond The Surface - during the Edinburgh International Festival 2 August – 4 September 2013. The Gallery will be hosting a further solo exhibition in May 2018.
