In a video created for the London Craft Week Vitrual Preview in cooperation with Contemporary Britsh Silvesmith, Jessica Jue gives a behind the scenes look into her studio and demonstrates techniques key to her practice, including hammering and gilding.
Jessica reinvents traditional techniques in silver to craft elegantly beautiful contemporary designs. Inspired by balance and harmony, she draws and sculpts with dramatic use of fluid and organic curves, and aims to create a sense of rhythmic movement within her collection. She skillfully manipulates her forms through the ancient art of hammering, while also introducing an abundance of rich surface textures, through the use of pattern and gold.
