Exuberant and thought-provoking, David Poston’s jewellery designs are, at the same time, minimal and sensual. He always wanted to make jewellery which related to the wearer’s self and which could be worn as much of the day and night as possible.
Jewellery is a way of reconciling people to their bodies, making them feel switched on. It is about how they feel inside and how they can realise that feeling.
Besides being a jeweller of international fame, Poston has pursued several other careers, some of them simultaneously. For the first time, this exhibition brings together the different aspects of his creative career to show the significant wider impact he has made.
The project is funded by Arts Council England, commissioned by The Harley Gallery and Ruthin Craft Centre and is curated by the former Director of the Crafts Council, Dr. Louise Taylor.
