ice ice baby
|A carefully considered installation|
|encrusted objects look cold to the touch|
|wearable work shimmers with icy cool|
If I had found a speck of dust or a stray bead it would have come as a shock, such is the level of control. That's not to say that the show is not without emotion or reaction to the environment it comments on. Sometimes these reactions feel deliberate, sometimes the work emotes despite itself.
|objects look lifted from a researchers Antarctic hut|
|a miniaturised enamelled mug both elegant and evocative|
|poetry and wearability meet|
