Work of Naama Haneman and Callum Partridge amongst pieces specially selected by judges at the prestigious Goldsmiths' Fair.
Date: 24 October 2018
The work of Cass graduates Naama Haneman and Callum Partridge was presented presented at the Goldsmiths’ Fair earlier this month as work that exemplifies excellence of their craft alongside diverse approaches to creative practice.
The annual Goldsmiths’ Fair is recognised internationally as the premier UK showcase for contemporary jewellery and silver selected by an expert panel to represent Goldsmiths’ Company.
Both Callum and Naama are Artists in Residence at the Cass supporting the Jewellery and Silversmithing facility and working alongside the fashion accessories and jewellery and silversmithing students.
Callum uses human postures as a starting point for characterful interpretations of mood. Naama evokes a dialogue between internal and external-seen and unseen spaces in sculpted and intuitive forms.
Callum said: “I first learnt to make jewellery from a young age in a community workshop where I grew up in Stroud, Gloucestershire. I knew then that I wanted to work with metal. I went on to study at the Cass and this is when silver really began to inspire me. Silversmithing allowed me to push my techniques and exploration of metal further.”
Namma, said: "The Cass workshop allowed me to make my first steps as a silversmith. During the last months, thanks to the amazing facility and the helping of The Cass, I created my first collection that I was exhibited at Goldsmiths' Fair."
The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, more commonly known as the Goldsmiths' Company, is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London and received its first royal charter in 1327.
Each year, the Goldsmiths’s Fair unique event draws collectors, design lovers and luxury shoppers to the magnificent Goldsmiths’ Hall where they can browse the latest collections from this handpicked selection of craftsmen and women.
