About the Artist
After a degree and career in interior design, Jude was smitten with jewellery-making in Mexico. She returned to Canada to study at George Brown College in Toronto. She is self-taught in polymer clay and is endlessly inspired by the exciting colours, textures and immediacy that are possible in this medium.
She blurs the lines between modern art and nature, her pieces range from soft organic forms and colours to blunt geometric shapes and bright hues. She is captivated with hollow shapes, tubes and cones and takes advantage of their forms to make lightweight jewellery. Her greatest passion is travel and expresses her love for antiquities and exotic lands in her pieces.
“When making jewellery I aim to create an authentic statement that touches someone’s life. Every design is an exploration of form and volume. I feel more akin to a sculptor, and I let the clay guide me, listening for new directions as I work. Polymer clay is extremely durable and suits my commitment to reduced obsolescence. I respect the earth's resources and am committed to a conscientious practice."
She is a juried member of the Saskatchewan and British Columbia Craft Councils.
