Drawing inspiration from the confectionery industry, this collection aims to glamorise the simple pleasures in life. The full spectrum of sweet treats from fruit chews and lollies, to cakes and pastries piled with cream and icing, are distilled down to their simplest forms and matched with a sickly sweet colour palette. Pastel tones derived from the sticky opacity of fruity chews, marshmallows and foams are achieved through a combination of softly coloured porcelain and carefully matched gemstones. Nuggets of cast porcelain and oversized gemstones are wrapped up in silver bezel settings and arranged in a collaged pick ‘n’ mix of pleasurable extravagance. The formality of precious materials is removed to create wearables that drip with the desire of momentary self-indulgence and look good enough to eat.
Rebecca comes from a background in ceramics and has recently introduced jewellery and wearables to her collection. She has exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad, most notably at COLLECT in the Saatchi Gallery, London, SOFA in Chicago and at JOYA in recent years. Her most recent collections were created with funding from Creative Scotland. She lives and works near Edinburgh in Scotland. Her favourite sweets are parma violets, preferably the big ones.
