Context Gallery, jewels and contemporary objects

Christine Cook

Christine Cook is a New Zealand based artist whose creative practice investigates the role and value of traditional craft practices within contemporary jewellery making. Her work also explores ideas around value, gender and domesticity. These pieces here represent hours of meticulous folding, weaving, braiding and pleating, bringing value and power to mundane objects through imaginative approaches to the design making process. Materials are selected for their expressive potential rather than monetary worth, emphasising the value of idea, workmanship and honesty of craft.
