Tate St Ives Spring Season Exhibitions: Helen Feiler

Tate St Ives
3 February – 13 May 2007

Helen Feiler (born 1952) is a Cornish-based artist whose sculptural jewellery celebrates the natural qualities and complex designs found in the stones, crystals and fossils she collects locally. Combining these with precious metals, the artist uses lost wax techniques, one of the earliest metal technologies evolved, to complement and animate surface, form and colour in relation to the body. For Tate St Ives this spring Feiler has created a new collection of necklaces, bracelets and rings.
