As one of Britain’s leading contemporary designers, Wendy Ramshaw CBE is renowned for her jewellery and distinctive, large-scale public art. This major exhibition shows key pieces spanning fifty years of her acclaimed career from her early jewellery in paper and plastic, through jewels in precious metals, stone, glass and ceramic, to a series of images and maquettes representing her public art commissions. Her work is held in mima’s collection as well as those of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum of Art and Design, New York.
A Harley Gallery touring exhibition in partnership with Ruthin Craft Centre.

Be one of the first to see the exhibition at mima by coming along to a free walk and talk around the exhibition with Wendy’s assistant, Emma Farnworth, on Friday 12 September, 11am-12noon.
