SARAH PULVERTAFT

I graduated from Sydney College of the Arts in 1988 with a BA in visual arts majoring in jewellery and silversmithing.On my return to the UK I set up my first workshop with a grant from the Clerkenwell Green Association (Craft Central) in London in 1995.

During this period I designed and made two collections a year and sold my pieces at trade shows such as London Fashion Week, and IJL. I exported my work to shops in Japan and the USA, including Barneys New York, Singapore and Japan and in the UK large stores such as Harvey Nichols and Liberty.

After the arrival of my 2 children, straddling the turn of the century, I decided to work in a more considered way, allowing time for the development of ideas and exhibiting at shows such as Goldsmiths’ Fair, Made London and Sieraad International Jewellery Art Fair.

Many of the themes I use now in my work - cubes, repeated and moving elements - hark back to pieces I made at the very beginning of my studio practice. I use traditional techniques to make contemporary jewellery in silver and gold,using repeated and kinetic elements to create intriguing undulating surfaces and patterns in my work.

I moved to Oxfordshire from London 10 years ago and have a workshop in a rural location on the Cornbury Estate. I draw inspiration from many sources including the environment in which I now live and work.
