Date: 13 September 2018
Work by Lieta Marziali. a contemporary art jeweller who has just completed her MA by Project at The Cass, has been selected for inclusion in the Ethical Metalsmiths Students So Fresh + So Clean exhibition
It is the second consecutive year that Lieta has featured in the permanent virtual exhibition curated by US-based Ethical Metalsmiths based in the US. Ethical Metalsmith Students (EM Students) is examining what it means to be an artist in the 21st century by curating the most innovative jewelry and metalsmithing work made within the past 2 years. Through the lens of sustainability and what it means to “do the right thing” EM Students challenges artists to investigate their studio, processes, methods, and personal goals.
Speaking about the success, Lieta says, “It is such an honour to be included in this exhibition for the second year running. It is great for my work to be recognised in this way at an international level, but it is also a testament to the high degree of attention I pay to ethical and environmental aspects in the way I run my practice and my studio.” The piece in the exhibition, the neckpiece titled 'Are We There Yet: On Recurrence, Recollection and the Resilience of Material Existence', was also featured in this year's Cass Yearbook and can be seen in the MA by Project exhibition, closing on Thursday 13 September. Her work was also selected for the 2018 edition of another prominent jewellery event: Gioielli in Fermento in Italy.
