Nicola Malkin's hugely successful ceramic works celebrate feminine luxury and provide a pun on the function of crafts as jewellery for the walls.
The City Gallery will be showcasing a towering ten-foot pearl necklace and a charm bracelet the size of a hula-hoop amongst other works. Her creations are pure decoration suggesting a dizzying opulence reminiscent of the luxury of the court of Versailles. The gigantification of jewellery renders these most precious of consumer goods absurdly expensive.
Malkin's pleasure in materials and witty choice of subject matter makes for a spectacular display of ceramics unlike anything you have seen before.
