Katie Lees

By studying the perhaps incongruous concept of creating finely crafted jewellery from the heavy industrial aesthetic of the shipbuilding history, that has moulded the city of Glasgow, Katie has created a collection of jewellery which encapsulates this industrial landscape.

The language is drawn not only from the pragmatic forms and robust engineering of the ships themselves but also from the remnants of industrial steel sheds, from sheets of rusted steel and dock stanchions of weather washed wood that define the river Clyde along its length. These shapes, although austere and cold in their original form, become curiously beautiful objects when condensed.
