“A Bestiary of Jewels12 April – 20 July 2014

Dr. Kevin Coates is a multi-talented artist-goldsmith and sculptor who creates virtuoso jewels in gold, precious stones, shells, and other exotic materials. His work is both exquisite and fantastical. Following his successful solo exhibition at the Wallace Collection in London in 2011, Coates has been working on an ambitious new project, A Bestiary of Jewels, pairing a creature with its significant human, with the jewel mounted in a bestiary ‘page’, in a poetic elaboration on the theme of the medieval encyclopaedias known as Bestiaries.”

Produced in association with the Ashmolean Museum
