Cass alumna presents new exhibition at The Scottish Gallery

Juliette Bigley uses base and precious metals to explore how we experience our emotional and physical place in the world

Date: 02 July 2019

From the 29 June to 20 July, The Scottish Gallery will be presenting New Material Perspectives, the latest exhibition from London Met alumna Juliette Bigley, who studied Jewellery and Silversmithing BA at The Cass.

Focusing mainly on lines and thresholds, Juliette’s work is sculptural and often comprises groups of objects made from base and precious metals, exploring how we experience our emotional and physical place in the world.

Juliette said: “My practice is centred on ‘making’ as the method through which I undertake these explorations. I typically make hollow forms, in varying scales that mirror the body by either physically or metaphorically containing, to create one-off sculptures and installations of objects.”

Marianne Forrest, course leader for Jewellery and Silversmithing and Head of Cass 3D, said: “Juliette has done really well since graduating and it is a pleasure to see her work demonstrating so clearly how much she enjoys her life as a professional designer and maker, with fantastic shows both nationally and internationally.”
