Dazzle Invites | Zsuzsi Morrison
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1988, Zsuzsi Morrison has created individual and one-off enamel pieces by hand. Her original desire to study fine art has greatly influenced her work. Her painting and want for colour in her jewellery led her to specialise in the field of enamelling. Using traditional enamelling techniques to express modern concepts, her work has a distinct avant-garde personal language. Zsuzsi's jewellery is imbued with a joyful exuberance. The jewel-like intensity she achieves in her colour palette is re-invented through this ancient process in her hands. Zsuzsi's exquisite detailing on even the reverse sides of her pieces is testimony to the meticulous care in the hand making and finishing of every piece that leaves her studio. This subtlety and attention to detail might be a tiny heart motif or kiss on the clasp of a chain, a bright gestural fleck of intense colour dancing across a surface, or an unrepeatable drawn line in gold wire on silver which acts as the canvas she paints on. Poised somewhere between jewellery, sculpture and paintings, Zsuzsi Morrison’s work could be described as modern day talismans or amulets, each piece an individual work of art. Her pieces are in many private collections and exhibited in galleries and design shops nationally and internationally.
Zsuzsi Morrison is showing an exclusive range of jewellery as part of the virtual Dazzle exhibition – Dazzle Invites.
Dazzle invites 30 contemporary jewellers, showing unique, one-off or limited edition designs, created specially for the exhibition. All pieces are available to purchase from 17 November – 10 January.
