Naomi is a jeweller and enameller.

Watch Sarah’s video to find more about their In:Site commission and read an extract from the blog below.

Naomi is jeweller who recently graduated with a MA from the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University. At In:Site Naomi explored the history and contemporary uses of Cathedral Square and asked the public, ‘What does Cathedral Square mean to you?’. They could add their responses to an enamel tile using graphite pencils or colourful glazes. Naomi also used decals to create a tiled response to the history of the space. She layered some of the public’s tiles with decals, fired them and they were displayed in the Cathedral.

Since In:Site 2018

Naomi continues to work as a practicing jeweller. She is also part of a collective of designers and artists who have come together following a curator’s experience of breast cancer, mastectomies and failed reconstruction called Bionic Boob.

She returned to In;Site in 2020, during lockdown to run an enamel workshop online.
