RCA SHOW 2012

Emma Montague

Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery


Eyewear

Black horn, jaw bone and acetate


Friction can be found where luxury meets decay and the refined becomes raw.

As raw remnants collide with smooth surfaces, hybrid forms take shape within this new collection of eyewear and jewellery. By subverting status symbols of personal adornment, dualities are left exposed, mirroring our own identity.
