Up in arms is an exhibition resulting from the collaboration between Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA) and Assorted Jewels studio in the school of design at The Cass, which specialises in jewellery and silversmithing.
For this collaborative exhibition, each student produced a component that holds a candle in order to illuminate any given space. These individual pieces have been brought together to create two voluptuous ‘chandelabras’.
CAA is a charitable organization which promotes the best in contemporary British craft. The relationship between Cass and CAA results from a number of CAA’s members also being Cass alumni. The Cass is part of London Metropolitan University and is internationally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent facilities and unique interdisciplinary opportunities. The philosophy of Assorted Jewels focuses on the idea of learning through making and it emphasises experimentation, understanding of materials and problem solving.
