On the Edge

01 September 2022 - 24 September 2022

Tania Clarke Hall’s designs are driven by a love of experimentation and her desire to challenge the way in which leather is used in jewellery. She studied chemistry before turning to textiles, then jewellery – these elements combine in her dynamic and complex pieces.

My work is inspired by the elegant solutions provided by simple geometry and a childhood love of experimentation. With its flexible, forgiving yet robust nature, leather is my perfect creative playmate. My jewellery celebrates the pleasure of the unpredictable and the overwhelming potential of this natural material.

“My jewellery celebrates the pleasure of the unpredictable and the overwhelming potential of this natural material.”

Tania Clarke Hall is an award-winning jeweller working in leather.  Influenced by her background in chemistry and a love of Japanese design, with its wabi-sabi aesthetic, Tania’s bold and dramatic pieces are designed with a deceptively simple economy of line.  She delights in moulding, slashing, and colouring the leather using experimental and innovative techniques that continually push the boundaries of her medium.  She explores blending traditional techniques from other disciplines such as bookbinding.  The result is elegant yet playful jewellery, created to be worn in a variety of ways: twisted, scooped, wrapped or draped on the body.

Tania studied at Middlesex University under acclaimed contemporary jeweller and artist Caroline Broadhead, gaining a 1st Class BA Hons in Jewellery.  She continues to work on new collections and bespoke commissions for both private and retail clients from her studio at Cockpit Arts in central London.
