BY Fraser Hamilton
Using the body as a landscape, Fraser creates tableaux of collapsed monuments, remnants of antiquity, and roughly hewn statues. By playing with connotations of material and scale, fragments of history are transformed into personal totems and jewellery is given a sculptural life. Fraser was born and raised in the Highlands of Scotland in a small coastal town called Oban. He studied Silversmithing and Jewellery at the Glasgow School of Art and while there he spent a semester at Hiko Mizuno College of Jewellery, Tokyo before moving on to gain his Masters at the Royal College of Art, London. Fraser lives and works in London.
