Adele Brereton

Adele Brereton uses the traditional silversmithing technique of hand-raising to create hollow forms, hammered from flat sheets of silver. Her work is inspired by her mud-larking exploits at the River Thames foreshore where she finds eroded fragments of Victorian smoking pipe bowls, with their worn edges and organic appearance.  Raised silver elements are combined with found shards of glass and pottery, hand carved wood or hand built porcelain, to make one-off pieces of sculptural jewellery.  There is a play between the organic and the man-made, referencing the industrial past whilst inherently creating work with a natural aesthetic.
