Wendy's World29 Apr 2020 - 02 Jun 2020
This May, The Scottish Gallery has created an online tribute to one of the world’s finest contemporary jewellers - Wendy Ramshaw, CBE, RDI (1939-2018). The Scottish Gallery was honoured and grateful to have been a platform for her many projects and ideas. We have delved into our archives as well as the family archive to share some of Wendy’s personal letters and notes, which reveal fascinating personal and technical insights into some of her major projects such as Picasso’s Ladies, Prospero’s Table and Journey Through Glass. Wendy Ramshaw was a champion of modern jewellery and her work is represented in over 70 public collections worldwide.
To accompany this special online tribute we have created a blog to be released in six parts, allowing you to discover more about Wendy Ramshaw’s life and work in her words. You can read our blog here.
A series of films allow you to explore Wendy's World and take a closer look at some of the key pieces from throughout her career that feature in the exhibition. You can view the films here.
For further reading you can view and purchase our limited edition publication: Wendy Ramshaw | The Scottish Gallery Collection here.
