Fluid forms

  • • Eimear's work balances materials and design
  • • Her attention to detail is meticulous
  • • She blurs the lines between function and art

Eimear Conyard has trained under many master gold and silversmiths at both the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and Glasgow School of Art. Her work combines metal skills with the use of surprising materials such as perspex. Her jewellery and timepieces seek to overcome the challenge of functionality, to not allow constraints to restrict imaginative designs. Her recent vessel forms bring a new scale to her work. These pieces use kum-bu, an ancient Korean gilding technique to apply thin sheets of gold to the surface of silver vessels. Eimear received the California Gold Medal and has work in the collection of the National Museum of Ireland.
