FINLAY GRANT

Jesmonite Brooches

About Finlay Grant

Finlay Grant is a Scottish jewellery artist who has produced a collection of vibrant brooches and neckpieces using coloured resin. His most recent collection explores the use of colour with jesmonsite. The source material that influences Finlay’s work is diverse and can come from all walks of life, although there are a number of recurring themes in his work that stem from his longstanding interest in architecture, geometry, and colour.

The process of making always starts with an extensive period of drawing, from both primary and secondary sources. Finlay’s ideas are developed from this relentless need to draw, to visualise his thought processes. This often involves moving away from the source and allowing his drawing to direct and inform new ideas and methods of making.

Finlay's latest collection of work ‘SCOOP’  continues to explore themes of expressing form and depth through pattern, layering and colour. 

This collection is informed by the process and materials used to make it. This creates a lovely interplay between the careful planning process involved and the uncontrolled nature of the material itself.   

Fun, joyful and carefully considered, this new body of work plays with jewellery technique to explore themes including geometry, colour and shape.
