In her first solo exhibition since graduating from The New Brunswick College Craft and Design, Robin Turner invites us to reflect on her new series of enamelled pieces. She has taken the year and has been honing in on her craft, and working passionately on her new series, titled “BLOOM". Through this body of work, the intention is to create a series that is powerful, playful and representative of her capabilities.
In this collection, she creates brooches with hand drawn floral images set in an ornate frame, expressing both femininity and purity. Primarily, each piece is made with enamel on copper to accentuate lustrous colours, and various accents such as pearls and felt that inspires the design of the objects.
