Birmingham City University, School of Jewellery
Naomi is a jeweller and enameller.
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.

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