Joanna Peters - Philosophy & Bio

Joanna graduated from the Surrey Institute Of Art and Design. Upon completing her studies in film and video, it felt natural to merge into existence her fondness of storytelling with sculpture relating to her love of drawing. She took jewellery classes for six years, where she learned her metalworking skills.

Her inspiration comes mainly from her close relationship to nature, its fragility and familiarity, the romance of daily life, her affection for narratives, and her Greek origin. Her pieces are all hand-made by her, chiefly using gold and silver. Often creating natural textures to maintain her work organic and alive.

 "I see my creations as micro sculptures - as pieces that may stand alone in their own right. I aim to achieve this by approaching my subjects as I would a painting, telling a story through textures, colour and form - making it my own. A recurring theme is the breaking of objects, mostly of natural elements, celebrating the magnificence of time and the beauty of fragility and decay - in contrast to the notion of the “forever" which jewellery is forged to, as well as the nature of the metal itself, tending to its uniqueness and reminding us of what is important in life."
