We are delighted to be exhibiting our work at the Digital Greenhouse, organised in conjunction with Guernsey Art Network.

Thank you very much to everybody who came to the private view.

This is a solo exhibition taking place from Friday 15th June until September.

The Digital Greenhouse is open from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday and while it is a working office for entrepreneurs and small businesses who hot desk on the premises, the public are welcome to come up and view the artwork.

This exhibition showcases new work from Athene with designs based on personal colour theory and perception. This is an extension of the work started in 2017 for the Gate House Gallery’s work in progress exhibition.

We are looking forward to taking part in the summer exhibition at the Harbour Gallery.

This exhibition opens 12 July and finishes 2 September.

The theme for this project is ‘all washed up,’  all pieces must have a connection to the sea, beach, cliffs etc.

“We are extremely excited about this exhibition and did not realise, when we set the title last September, just how topical it would be” – Harbour Gallery

We are intending to use recycled beach combed plastics in our designs for this exhibition.

This is right up our street, recycling is a huge part of our ethos. Since the recycling exhibition at the crafts council in Islington in 1996 recycling has been at the forefront of our design process. We use recycled materials daily in our jewellery and we recycle as much as we can in the workshop, repurposing whatever we can. Much of our display material is recycled as is our packaging, which is also recyclable.
Pass It Along Project 2018

Pass It Along Project

 

We are delighted to take part in the Pass It Along Project again this year.

The Pass It Along Project is a collaborative jewellery project. The idea is like the game of consequences, or Chinese whispers. Working within a small team of jewellers from across Europe and North America, I will work on a piece and then send it, or “pass it along” to the next person in my group who will then work on it before finally passing it along to a third person.

Below are two of the three pieces of work that we have been working on for this project, we are excited to see how these turn out. More to follow.

Reflections of Occupation 2018

Reflections of Occupation 2018

Reflections on Occupation

Guernsey was occupied by the German forces for most of the Second World War, from 30 June 1940 until the “liberation” on 9 May 1945.

Guernsey Art’s Commission held an open competition to coincide and engage with the Heritage festivals theme of Occupation and Liberation running from 30 March until 10 May 2018.

This theme has been chosen by visit Guernsey to coincide with the film, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which was perfect for us with our range of Potato Peel Jewellery which was accepted and is currently being displayed in the Greenhouse Gallery
