London Craft Week showcase of contemporary jewellery and silverware from the COSMIMA collective
9 - 12 May 2018
67 York Street, London W1
For London Craft Week, COSMIMA presents the latest handcrafted jewellery and silverware from seven leading UK designers. The five fine jewellery designers of the COSMIMA collective have invited two silversmiths to join them in showing at the 67 York Street gallery in London’s Marylebone. One-off pieces in silver, gold and precious stones, all hand made in the UK, will be on show and for sale from 9 – 12th May, and visitors will have the chance to meet the makers and find out more about their craft.
On 10th May curator and design critic, Corinne Julius, will chair a discussion between the COSMIMA designers and guest silversmiths, exploring the common threads between their practices and the origins and development of the collective.
Tickets are £8 and can be bought online via Eventbrite.
COSMIMA are known for selecting respected and widely collected designers for their exhibitions. All designers show internationally and their works can be found in the collections of the V&A, the Goldsmiths’ Company and Crafts Council.
The five core members of COSMIMA are Hidemi Asano, Chris Carpenter, Ulla Hörnfeldt, Daphne Krinos and Louise O’Neill; fine jewelers and contemporaries who met over fourteen years ago and have collaborated ever since, while building profiles independently for their work around the globe.
The work of each designer is distinctive but bound by a commitment to craftsmanship, quality and consideration of processes, materials, techniques and visual narrative.
