JEWELRY ARTIST: MARIE SINCLAIR
I’m a big fan of my dog 🐶, Hamilton, and authenticity.
My favourite poet is Emily Dickinson.
My favourite author is Jodi Picoult.
My favourite artist is Vincent Van Gogh because what a story right? Relatable.
My favourite dessert is Peanut Butter chocolate anything.
Why did you choose that poem?
I chose the poem about Bayfront Park because this specific place in the city is mere minutes from my apartment and has been a healing space for me over the past few years. I also feel much joy for my Hamilton home, despite the many struggles we are facing today, and feel the Poem celebrated and shared this sentiment. The imagery in the poem really stood out to me and gave me concrete ideas for how to turn this piece into a collection of jewelry.
Have you done this kind of project before? Would you do it again?
I’ve never participated in anything like this before and I loved the exercise of it. I look forward to future PoARTry projects.
Can you tell us a bit more about your process from idea to finished work? Why those colours and shapes?
There’s a juxtaposition at Bayfront of nature and man-made and I tried to capture this grit and grace in the series. I used Colours reflective of the water and sky, but also various shades of grey for cement, fog, and factories. There are even bits of burning red embers glinting out from the dark shapes of the factory structure.
Anything else you’d like to share?
This collection was one of a kind and is sold, I will be remaking a similar collection although due to the handmade nature of the pieces, no two are ever exactly alike.
