Ethical jeweller’s "wearable sculptures" to appear in London showcase.
Ethical jewellery designer Ute Decker, recognised for her contemporary, sculptural openwork creations, is set to take part in the London Festival of Architecture showcasing her jewels.
Her work has been previously described as “architectural jewellery”, and as a result Decker will host a solo exhibition of one-of-a-kind designs and a small collection in recycled silver and Fairtrade gold during the festival in July.
Decker said:”Recognising that we are as much sensory, as cognitive, rational creatures the relation of ethics and aesthetics in artefacts and the built environment has interested me for a long time.
“It is this question of social beauty – the relation between inner and outer beauty – I explore in my work.”
Following a series of shows in Paris, Tokyo, Amsterdam and New York,
Ute Decker’s work will be part of three selling exhibitions in London this summer, including the Goldsmiths’ pavilion at London Jewellery Week in June, Cockpit Arts Open Studios in Holborn in Jule, and the London Festival of Architecture also in July.
