This summer, alongside her menagerie of figurative beaded creatures, Susan Horth will launch a new series of silver statement jewellery inspired by the fluid movement of Siamese fighting fish. The new collection draws on Susan's fascination with detail and movement in the natural world in a more sculptural and futuristic style. Cast using the traditional 'lost wax' technique, each piece is individually carved to create it's own unique form.
Visit Susan Horth in her studio and meet 100 of her fellow artists and makers at Cockpit Arts in Holborn. All of the artisans will be opening the doors to their studios - inviting you to see behind-the-scenes.

"Dragons are creatures of boundaries, existing just out of reach - they are metaphors of the unknown. On the margins of medieval manuscripts - these iconic creatures are the joyful imaginings of bored monastic scribes. Edward Lear's 'Nonsense' poems, the Martins Brothers pots and Hieronymus Bosch all resonate in the imagination and have different meanings for each observer. Creatures real and imagined connect us to the minds of past people and invite questions about meaning that we can only speculate on. Makers are still inspired to create interpretations of mythical creatures such as dragons. They are Chinese whispers from the past and in the end, just objects, on which to tell our own stories." - Susan Horth
Susan is visiting Iapetus Gallery in Great Malvern this September with her new exhibition, Fantastical Kingdom, full of incredible jewellery and sculptures inspired by magical creatures from stories, myths & legends, as well as characterful wildlife. The pieces will also be available online at iapetus.co.uk.

Susan Horth will create a 'bejewelled English garden by the sea' at CRAFTCO, a gallery situated in the seaside town of Southwold in Suffolk. Intricate beaded creatures, both standing sculptures and wearable jewels, will sit amongst spring flowers in ‘apple blossom’ greens and sugar pinks. In Susan’s world the innate beauty and preciousness of every creature is brought to the fore from birds and butterflies to the more unexpected slugs and snails. The garden will be presented alongside a series of oil paintings by artist Mark Burrell, whose work is known for rich narrative and use of colour.
