Silhouette

A solo show of new work by Frieda Lühl.

Based in Windhoek, Namibia, Frieda is one of our most exciting contemporary jewellers: traditionally trained in Germany she has impeccable technical skill, and her childhood in the Namibian desert informs her work with a love of nature and an interest in combining unusual materials.

For this exhibition Frieda has made a departure from her usual, non-figurative work, to produce a collection inspired by the old German tradition of Scherenschnitte - cut-out silhouettes. Using Namibian women with elaborate hairdo’s as her subjects, she has translated this technique of portraiture into metal to produce an engaging series of jewellery pieces.
