Ann Little05 Sep 2018 - 29 Sep 2018
A solo exhibition from jeweller Ann Little who specialises in the use of enamel to create vibrant, subtle forms that are a joy to wear. Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1996, Ann has continued to exhibit both nationally and internationally.
'Most of my jewellery incorporates slate or enamel. When I first set up in business I concentrated on hand cutting and filing slate, sometimes inlaying silver and mother-of-pearl. With the purchase of a kiln for enamelling, I began to introduce colour combining enamel with slate, making many pieces reversible to give the wearer a choice of colour. I use enamel powder dry, sprinkling on thin layers of colour, sometimes drawing into the powder enamel or rubbing it back once fired to reveal colours underneath. I also enamel on thin copper shim overheating the enamel to make it burn away from the raised marks that are scored into the metal. My latest work now involves simple, bold shapes.'
