Studio Showing – Katherine Clark, Jeweller
Date: Saturday 21 November
Join Canberra Glassworks and explore what the historic Kingston Power House means to jeweller Katherine Clark, who has been a That’s not glass! resident artist.
Born and raised in Italy, Katherine currently calls Canberra home. This event will display her beautiful jewellery selection, inspired by the architectural structure of the Kingston Power House, for the first time.
In developing these new works, Katherine has taken a wider view of the arts during the year the Kingston Power House was completed, in 1915.
‘It was a very interesting period for jewellery design: with the transition from Edwardian, Belle Époque and Art Deco often blurred,’ says Katherine.
‘On a personal level, my grandfather was a pearler at that time — nephew of James Clark, the Pearl King. The same year Gabrielle Chanel opened her first Couture House in France, promoting the virtues of glass “pearls”.’
