Jessica Turrell

Meet the Artist

Born: 1964
Place of Birth: Bristol

Jessica trained in jewellery and enamel at Central School of Art, London. Upon graduation, she set up her own studio in her home city of Bristol. Over recent years she has undertaken a sustained period of research into mark-making using non-traditional enamel techniques. Jessica’s current studio practice includes the production of both jewellery and larger scale enamel work.

“I have developed an approach by which I seek to create work that moves away from traditional enamel practice in order to achieve a more ambiguous and expressive material quality. In both my jewellery and my larger scale work I strive to obtain a tactile delicacy whilst making pieces that reward the wearer’s close attention with an intricate and detailed surface.”
