FLOOR PLAN AND PRICE LIST

Utilising traditional methods of hand carving and wood turning; Dalton’s approach is instinctive. Inspired by nature, with a focus on bold patterns accentuated by intricate detail: Primitive aims to capture the essence of prehistoric art combined with contemporary craftsmanship.

Primitive is a line of wooden works produced by Scottish designer Kirsty Dalton. Handcrafted from cuts of natural wood, each piece is individually shaped and burnt free hand; using a process called Pyrography; complimenting the unique, natural form of this beautiful medium.

RELICS // KIRSTY DALTON – Jewellery Showcase 2017

2nd October – 26th October 2017

 

‘Relics’

Scottish designer Kirsty Dalton creates her Relics jewellery line by upcycling various fragments of superfluous metals while focusing heavily on colour, texture and decay. Relics takes discarded or scrap jewellery and revitalises it into fresh new designs. In essence, it is a contemporary take on the idea that “one person’s trash is another’s treasure”.

Each piece is one of a kind; individually handcrafted, composed, arranged, painted and set in resin. These works aim to capture the aura of industrial and derelict areas within the urban cityscape, while simultaneously illustrating the beauty such spaces have to offer.

“I wanted to capture an essence of the people around me, by utilising materials that they have used and discarded. By transforming this range of materials, I hope to address the topic of waste, whilst giving the objects and materials the opportunity to be seen with a sense of reflection and perhaps, even admiration.”

Conceptually, this stemmed from Kirsty’s interest in found objects and how they can effect as well as define certain aspects of our lives. “I believe the process of decay and waste encapsulates a great deal about society and our transformative role within it.”
