The launch of new collections at this year’s Jewellery show, (spring fair NEC), saw Sara Preisler’s 21st year in business start with a bang. Selected for the prestigious Jewellery catwalk at the show, Sara’s new collection ‘Equator’ and best selling collections: ‘Rome’ and ‘Ellipse’ were well received by press and buyers alike.

With a strong presence in the design arena, Sara’s customers are now fast collecting her exclusive designs. More than ever before, limited edition pieces by the designer are being sought and sourced by independent collectors.

The new ‘Equator’ collection will be coming to the website soon, to register your interest in the collection please e-mail Sara at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

 

 
Announcing the Winners of The Sara Preisler Award for Practical Realisation of Concept. E-mail

We are pleased to announce the winners of the Sara Preisler Award for Practical Realisation of Concept. This is the first year that Sara has offered this coveted award to the BA students at Birmingham City University's School of Jewellery, and is awarded to the student or students who best express their chosen philosophy or human experience through their collection of degree work.

The winners are Yuaning Kai and Miriam Mcsorley. Congratulations!!

Yuanying's work explores the relationships between texture and form, utilising silicone rubber alongside powder coated metal to create an exceptional contrast with a sensitive colour pallette.

Miriam McSorely's sculptures explore interaction between the humans and the urban environment by using solid forms that seem to have a life all of their own.

Keep your eyes out! You'll see them in the gallery soon!

 
Birmingham Architecture Festival comes to The Sara Preisler Gallery E-mail
Friday, 24 May 2013 12:07

Sara Preisler, Jewellery Designer & Gallery Owner creates a series of sculptural pieces sketching a view of three of the city’s leading architectural firms

Opening times: 11am-5pm Monday-Saturday

Show ends June 1st 2013

In being approached for this festival, I wanted to create a few sketches of my thoughts as a lay person and resident user of the city. I really love the real life approach the festival reflects and wanted to reflect my thoughts along these lines also.

As a jewellery designer-maker, working in one of the older parts of the city, I wanted to reference people who were working, or whose work is around me influencing the flux of the city today. I wanted to focus on the creative directive of contributing agencies to the sense of our lives ’life’ rather than the one-off beauties so frequently flaunted as ‘modern architecture’ to tempt us to destroy them with time.

In looking at BM3 Architecture, Glenn Howells Architecture and Bryant Priest Newman, I found them all award winning and successful, but as well as this I saw efficient and intelligent works constantly being produced. I feel their current influence on this city to be honest with a correct application of significance in their work, (contextualisation), and lastly, most essentially, a real sense of their consideration for content: the people for whom their work is designed.

For my pieces relating to these three architectural firms I deliberately wished to respond by ‘walking by’ in trying to capture an essence of their purpose and aesthetic, I wanted to create a 3-d sketch. I limited my production to three hours each piece to achieve this end.

Each piece is hand made in copper mounted on board.
