Showcase06 Jan 2017 - 23 Jan 2017
This January, we focus on the modern jewellery of Professor Dorothy Hogg, who studied at Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art and was course leader of Jewellery & Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art from 1985 until 2007. Dorothy Hogg transformed the jewellery and metalwork department at ECA into a world class centre of excellence and her department produced numerous graduates of distinction, many of whom are shown in the gallery today. In 2001 she was awarded an MBE for services to jewellery and silversmithing and in 2005 she won the Brilliantly Birmingham Jewellery Award which is awarded to the jeweller who has made the greatest contribution to the world of designer-maker jewellery. Dorothy Hogg’s sculptural, beautifully crafted jewellery often contain playful elements relating to music and other senses.
