JONATHAN BOYD

Senior tutor in jewellery & metalwork at the Royal College of Art, Jonathan’s work combines intensely researched concepts with complex casting techniques. Using images and text from films made around the city, Jonathan is currently exploring how language and environment overlap and ways that the city and our surroundings can shape and define us. Jonathan’s thought provoking pieces have joined museum collections worldwide, believing that as an art form jewellery connects with us on a visceral, emotional level and we embed memories in the objects we choose to adorn us. For him, jewellery is a perfect medium for exploring the human experience, the largest project being the Medals and memorabilia he designed for the 2014 Commonwealth games, seen by over 2 million people.

"Every morning on my way to work I walk past the sunrise over Lidl and it is beautiful"- Jonathan Boyd
