Turning Point Showcase: Ceramic Jeweller – Rachel Codd

“While some artists stumble into a niche by chance, Rachel Codd discovered her’s early on and nurtured it over time. Yet something about her says, quite clearly, she won’t be resting on her laurels.”  –  Cardiff School of art and design.

 As Rachel explains “I make narrative jewellery in stained porcelain, often working with existing classical narratives; such as in the case of my current work; a collection of necklaces, based on Oscar Wilde’s poem ‘la belle della mia mente. I’ve loved working in ceramics since I was a child and was also constantly taking pieces of jewellery apart and reconstructuring them in to new designs; it seemed only right combine my  two passions to create my practice.My current work based on Oscar Wilde’s poem explored the natural beauty of the human form as I see my media; jewellery, in function as a means to  highlight ones beauty. I value the ornate in my practice  and strive to create work which contains layers of meaning and  detail.”
