Persistence Works

Rachael thinks through materials and making, producing jewellery, tableware and sculpture which are explored in experimental dining events, exhibitions, installations, and visual art projects. Her work challenges our collective connections with food and communicates aspects of her lived experience as a sufferer of the autoimmune disease systemic sclerosis.

Rachael is an artist and senior lecturer in jewellery and metalwork at Sheffield Hallam University. She gained a BA (Hons) in 3D design, specialising in jewellery and silversmithing at Loughborough University in 2007 and went on to obtain an MA in goldsmithing, silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery from the Royal College of Art in 2010. Pieces from her Sha-green jewellery series are held in the permanent collections of the Itami City Museum of Art, History and Culture, Japan; Archivio Negroni, Milan and Le Arti Orafe, Florence, Italy.
