Kate Bradbury: Cementing a New Jewelry Style

Modernism in cement

Architects material of choice, concrete, once stood for modernity and progress
but now symbolizes the welfare estates. The use of concrete combined with contrasting
materials and surfaces, Kate Bradbury explores both the order that architects sought to
evoke and the decay that these estates now exist in. The collection made with
cast-concrete, spray paint and constructed metal forms was inspired by the housing
estates of the 1950’s.
Bradbury says, “I have been inspired by industrialism and
the urban landscape, responding to the repetition of the estate and it’s
‘form follows function’ Bauhaus aesthetic”.
