Emily Goodaker Balance ||

Silver, Gold Plated weighted forms, Jesmonite & thread © Sarah Holliday 2013

This body of work takes on the aesthetic of balance and weighing scales; intending to create sculptural objects for the body.  Extra weighted forms can be added to the jewellery sections, both increasing the physical weight and value. Emphasis on how the jewellery sits when not being worn has led her designs. Emily has been researching ancient weighing scales and how they are stored in riveted boxes. She wanted to make blocks that allowed the jewellery to be stored as well as balanced. The indented sections of the jesmonite blocks allow for this, adding playfulness to the display of her work and giving the pieces life out side their jewellery box
