Mizuki Takahashi is an award-winning contemporary jewellery artist, living and working in Worcestershire having graduated from Hereford College of Arts.
Prior to jewellery making, she spends time building ideas and designs in her sketch books and making paper samples. Practicing in mark-making and playing with paper gives her simple yet delicate sculptural design ideas in her jewellery making.
Mark-making is a simple practice of different lines, dots, patterns, and textures. These marks are sometimes collected from random drawings from her sketch books, the photographs she has taken or marks she found in daily life. She enjoys this practice in enamelling as it is both controllable and non-controllable on the enamelled surface, which also differs from the firing time and kiln temperature.
