Jade Mellor, Painting With Scissors, A Ring for Henri Matisse Resin, studio fragments, 2014

The strong blue and geometeric shapes in Henri Matisse's work are unmistakeable. The recent exhibition of the artist at Tate Modern has brought together his cut outs, as he called it "Painting with Scissors" communicating through a collection of colour and shape. In this piece Jade has created a completely unique ring using fragments from her studio. Each coloured fleck was the resulting debris from pieces of jewellery she has made in the past and by gathering these it has allowed them to create their own kaleidoscopic jewel. This is a fragment of fragments she then built into a ring in brightest blue.

"I thought of Matisse with all of these snippets of paper scattered around him, the discarded trimmings an exploded kaleidoscope as he artfully curved and corralled the scissors into making the shapes he wanted. This confetti was the negative of each of his shapes, you couldn't have made one without the other. Using the fragments of my own work, each one existing because of the pieces I had made has gone on to create a completely new piece, the offspring of creativity."

A lot of time and care has gone into this piece, to look after it please treat as a ceramic as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. Liquids and perfumes should be avoided. It can be cleaned if necessary with a soft clean, dry cloth.
