Lin Cheung | Locating the Precious | Boisbuchet 2019

This workshop asked: how can we recognise and communicate preciousness?
Preciousness is a distinctive attribute of jewellery. As a concept that surrounds its form, function, and materials, it features significantly in the practice of making meaningful objects. The desired outcome was the development of many creative proposals and strategies that address “the precious” in terms of context and materiality. Through this process of conceptual exercises and individual creative practice we laid a notional foundation on which a framework of ideas is built and surprising material outcomes are constructed.
