About the artist
Inspired by the history of ornament Marianne Anderson’s jewellery presents a considered exploration of traditional ornamental forms and a refreshingly original interpretation of the decorative.
Working within a restrained palette of oxidised silver, 18ct gold, red garnets and white pearls, she creates luxurious and wearable collections that skilfully reference the human fascination with adornment.
Her arrangement of repeated parts into patterns creates symmetries and contrasts that are alluring and elegant. Hand-pierced silhouettes are systematically arranged or scattered randomly deconstructing controlled patterns and creating bold fragmented images on an intricate scale.
“I am interested in how we draw from the past and return frequently to motifs and patterns of historic and symbolic significance. My aim is to highlight the importance of ornament in a modern context.”
Marianne graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2003 and from her studio in Glasgow she exhibits and sells her work internationally.
