Belfast School of Art – End of Year Show 2018

Congratulations to all the graduates from this year’s BA Hons Degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing! The degree show is always a lovely opportunity to get an insight into new, emerging talent. If you missed it this year, remember that the University Shop, ‘Unique’ is open all year, showcasing work by current and past graduates.

There was to be a strong sense of the individual maker’s identity in this year’s show, with some lovely contrasting approaches in materials and technique. This came across strongly in Eglė Banytė’s constructivist jewellery and the hammered steel in Kirsty Reilly’s ‘Fragility of Connections’ series. For a brief overview of the work click on the images below.
