Jewellery & Metal Panel Discussion: Thinking in Metal

Rooted deep within culture, metal is at the heart of our society, from mythologies and economies of the past through to the latest technologies and visions of the future. Each of the practitioners within this discussion group express ideas through their own creative methods, using material qualities as a vocabulary to connect and communicate in unique ways.

Professor Michael Rowe - Panelist

Michael Rowe has been teaching at the Royal College of Art since 1978, first as a Visiting Lecturer and then as Tutor in 1980; from 1984 he has been Senior Tutor in Jewellery & Metal. In 1987 he was made a Fellow. Regarded as a leading figure in contemporary studio metal, Rowe was one of a small group of RCA graduates in the early 1970s whose radical approach laid the foundations for an expanded practice in the crafts. His influence has disseminated through exhibiting internationally in Europe, America, Australia and the Far East, and travelling extensively to lecture and participate in international symposia, workshops and conferences. Rowe set up studio in south London in 1972 and is represented by Gallery S O, London and Solothun.

His work has been acquired by major private and public collections, such as The Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Goldsmiths’ Company in London.
