Anne Morgan

Anne Morgan is an established contemporary jeweller who recently designed and made the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2012 Crown - A most prestigious accolade for any Welsh designer. Anne has been well supported by the Arts Council of Wales with two Project Grants in the last 5 years and enjoys continually developing her work. She is based in South Wales. She is the current chair of ACJ (Association for Contemporary Jewellery) Wales and founding member of the group. She is also a member of Makers Guild in Wales where she exhibits her work through their gallery, Craft in the Bay.

Anne’s specialism in her jewellery is to use a technique called reticulation. The texture marks a precise moment in which Anne withdraws the flame from part-liquefied silver. Once she has perfected these surfaces Anne off sets them with strong lines. She forges a relationship between organic texture and a simple geometry, rather like the placing of a formal structure in a natural landscape. She sets up a coupling in which each element complements the other. She often combines the textured silver with semi-precious stones and pearls. She continues to return to her passion of reticulation.

Her new work  ‘Coast’ is supported by the Arts Council of Wales, and combines her own work and found objects gathered from coastlines. The objects are both natural and manmade treasures and are often one off designs.

Anne is always developing her work and exploring other mediums to create wearable pieces.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
