Rachel Butlin and Li-Chu Wu, Made in the Middle 2016 exhibitors, will be joining the event to talk about their experience of exhibiting.

Rachel Butlin

Rachel seeks to challenge the concepts of contemporary jewellery, producing a range of high end , mixed material pieces. She loves to challenge the way in which people perceive a piece, by creating small scale sculpture that can be worn on the body, in a way chosen by the wearer. Carefully considering material combination and placement, her work often explores bespoke materials, evoking curiosity between the piece and the wearer themselves.  She gathers materials in a collection, waiting to explore them through combination and placement, in a 3D drawing process. Drawing with materials is an essential part of her practice, with linear forms, featuring strongly alongside geometric shapes and spaces.”

Li-Chu Wu

Originally from Taipei, Taiwan, Li-Chu is a contemporary designer jeweller based in the UK. Her art practice combines materials and layers, distinguished by the subtle movement achieved through layers, embodying a harmonious fusion of traditional metalsmithing techniques and new technologies. Exhibits worldwide. Currently works in the jewellery trade. She demonstrates expertise in crafting contemporary jewellery, working in fine jewellery and antique jewellery world.
