Glenys Phillips

work in progress by Glenys Phillips inspired by Bradford College Textile Archive collections

student workbook held in Bradford College Textile Archive which inspired Glenys Phillips' jewelleryAs a practitioner of a precise craft I was mesmerised by the accuracy and precision of the work of fourteen year old textile student of the Bradford Technical College in the 1890s and early 1900s…and all this by gaslight.

I am a jeweller with years of experience and I find my ageing eyesight a real hindrance to my art, but I hope to use the inspiring neatness of Master R Sanctuary to form the basis of my research at the Bradford College Textile Archive and colour my creations."
