Borne - Sculpture for the body.

Published by: Stanley Street Gallery | 11-Oct-2016
What does it look like when artists try something different? A diverse range of established, mid-career and emerging sculptors were asked to make work which could be worn or which stepped into the field of jewellery or body adornment. For many sculptors, this is their first foray into work for the body.
