Opening this Weekend –
From Where I’m Standing 16th June – 7 July 2019 at The Pool House Gallery in Gloucestershire.
Amanda will be exhibiting as part of Fresh Air Sculpture 2019 in Gloucestershire this summer. She has been invited by curator Jo Swait to be part of From Where I’m Standing at The Pool House Gallery.
The Pool House exhibition invites artist makers from across the Craft disciplines to interpret views. This may simply be a view that is returned to again and again, or perhaps from memory or even fleetingly glimpsed. Or maybe it is about taking a position or viewpoint.
The seasonal observation of one field, the effect of climate change on our planet, the repetition of pattern in architecture, the colour and biodiversity of a meadow, a river, a woodland. The interpretations through clay, glass, metals, wood and cloth will emerge to form varied and exciting collections.
16th June – 7 July 2019
The Old Rectory, Quenington, Gloucestershire GL7 5BN
Tickets can be purchased in advance here
See Amanda’s Brutalist collection and Long Necklaces at Tate Edit on the riverfront at Tate Modern this summer.
Amanda Doughty designs & makes contemporary jewellery for men and women.
Well known for her geometric, architectural inspired work using bold forms and hidden precious stones, Amanda sells through a small number of shows in the UK, although works mainly to commission.
She lives and works in Brighton UK, having set up her business at Cockpit Arts, Holborn, London in the early 1990’s.
These pieces are available to purchase from the collection, please call Amanda for further details.
Predominantly made from hematite with a bold stretch of coloured semi-precious beads offset. Stones include garnets, lapis lazuli, blue jade, yellow jade, spinel, aqua marine, goldstone, bamboo coral with oxidised silver chain and detail.
This collection draws on my life long love of round and hollow forms. Signature geometric shapes which have been key to my work throughout my career. The hollow circle – this time with a splash of coloured stones – emerald, sapphire, ruby and of course diamond.
Love this video from some special clients…
This lovely video made by clients, Yann and Hannah, shows us in my studio working on the texture of their handmade wedding rings. My studio is on the 4th floor of Phoenix Brighton and has great views across the city. You can catch glimpses of my tools and objects of inspiration that I have around me.
Each commission is different, it was important for Yann and Hannah to be a part of the making process.
