Christmas Blue Magpie – Artist Profile: Tanith Rouse

Tannish trained at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, achieving a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing and Jewellery. 

She loves making jewellery from a variety of materials and particularly enjoy using aluminium because it’s lightweight, versatile and above all, potentially colourful. 

At university Tanith became interested in the value placed on jewellery, writing her final thesis on the differences between the aesthetic and the intrinsic value of jewellery.  As a consequence, she has preferred to use non precious metal such as aluminium transforming it in to something that is desirable for its beauty rather than its monetary worth.

Tanith hand dyes, paints and prinst the aluminium and then seals the colour in so that it becomes a permanent part of the metal.  She is inspired by bright colours and anything that glitters.  Tanith’s love of the sea is also apparent in much of her work often playing on the colours of green and blue.

Tanith will be at the market on Sunday only.
