Collection: Jade Mellor

Jade's work is all about creativity and curiosity, constantly researching ideas and techniques. These include site visits, working with museum curators and learning via specialised courses in natural science and ancient history and periods of study.

Her work is continually evolving, and as she learns about the make-up of the universe she puts these findings into her work. Inspiration can be ignited by a painting she has seen in a gallery trip, a meteorite slice magnified under a microscope or the discoveries of a 19th Century scientist. The time she spends on her work is constant, all of the things she does in her quest to understand and appreciate the world around her as well as the physical making of her work. Her own hand shapes all of her pieces, with labour intensive techniques and material experiments allowing control of the processes from start to finish, pushing the material further all the time.
