The unit investigates small-scale sculpture in relation to body adornment. It also focuses on the intimacy of the object within the context of the body. The objective is to view the human body as a site for the articulation and integration of the object as adornment. Although students are introduced to a variety of materials, the primary emphasis is on working with metals, techniques and tools within the jewellery studio. A brief history of body adornment will be discussed, as well as where the work fits into a contemporary culture context.
