Industrial Series, Kirsty Fraser

In the sixteenth of our series of ‘Creatives of the Week’ chosen from ARTS THREAD’s graduate portfolios, we take a look at the specialism of ceramics, jewellery and glass and highlight the work of Kirsty Fraser.

Kirsty Fraser studied Jewelery & Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art and we have chosen Kirsty for the way she has translated her photographs of industrial buildings into jewelery via the regimented and structural technique of laser cutting. Laser cut MDF is combined with acrylic and silver in the pieces displayed below.

Skyscraper Series, Kirsty Fraser

Kirsty says:

I have designed this collection with a strong focus on the interstitial spaces created by buildings and other structures along with an emphasis on extending beyond traditional approaches to jewellery making.

My inspiration stems from my photography of industrial areas of Glasgow and countries across Africa. I have manipulated these photographs in order to highlight repetitive sequences and the subtleties of enclosed negative spaces. By dissecting and magnifying specific areas I have created a variety of intriguing and never-ending patterns with a lively and experimental quality.

Zanzibar series, Kirsty Fraser

Each piece in this collection is a miniature sculpture with strong architectural presence and graphical potential.
