Clare Hillerby

After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1997 with a BA (Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing, I received a Start-Up Grant in 1998 from the Scottish Arts Council and established my workshop and business in Edinburgh. Now based at Studio 20a Manchester Craft & Design Centre.
Inspiration...
Ephemera featuring handwriting are sourced, sections extracted then combined with new metalwork...contemporary stories emerge. Fragments of handwriting appear as pattern with hints of original meaning. Contrasts of writing styles and character are important, and combining various characters result in new conversations. Original old postcards, stamps and maps are combined with old wooden rulers and silver elements. Silver is often oxidised for a depth of colour and to allow papers to become the highlight. Yellow gold tube rivets are employed in construction and reference an industrial landscape. History and heritage are a constant reference.
