Jocelyn BurtonJocelyn Burton

Born in Wales in 1946. Schooled at St Clare's, Seaton, Devon then Lady Margaret House, Cambridge. She intended to read modern languages at Cambridge but instead trained as a silversmith under Jack Stapley in London at Sir John Cass College as she knew that she "needed to create things." Studied etching and mezzotint here as well with Radovan Kraguli. 1966 travelling scholarship to Yugoslavia and the following year she won the De Beers International Award for diamond jewellery while still at college but left in her third year as she was not allowed to undertake practical experience one day a week. In 1970 she set up her studio in London at 50c Red Lion Street and had a one-man show at the Archer Gallery in Dover Street. Often uses naturalistic shells in her designs for domestic silver and this work is based on her own designs - from preliminary sketches to finished colour drawings. These drawings are works of art and are prized for their own sake. The Thames and Hudson Manual of Silversmithing by Frances Loyen was published in 1970 and contained many illustrations of Jocelyn's work from this period. In 1975 she produced some designs for Aurum. In 1976 she was commissioned to produced a fountain for the Fishmonger's Company for the Queen's Silver Jubilee. In 1995 Jocelyn Burton won the United Kingdom Jeweler Award for best design in silver and in 1998 had an exhibition at Asprey and Garrard in Bond Street. She received the Prince Phillip Medal in 2003. Her work is in many public and private collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, 10 Downing Street, St Paul's Cathedral London and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
Personal statement: "The world truly is "my oyster" in the sense that I am fascinated by the beauty and complexity of nature. I pay great attention to detail, often incorporating precious and semi precious stones and finely chased figurative decoration but I strive overall for timelessness and boldness of concept and form."
