About Joanne Tinker

About the artwork

Recycled foil sweety wrappers take on jewel-coloured goblet form.

Tiny, miniature goblets made from brightly-coloured sweet wrappers, miniature chairs made from champagne tops, or jewellery and clothing stitched together from tin cans and bottle tops – Tinker's interest in re-using thrown away objects chimes well with these recycled times.

Joanne Tinker was born in Nottingham (1969) but raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, and then Leeds, true to her family name – Tinker – Joanne trained to work with metal, earning a first-class degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery from Birmingham in 1992. Joanne’s work is heavily influenced by the concept of recycling; transforming metal bottle tops, acupuncture tubes, confectionary wrapping, and aluminium cans into something precious, something special. The use of chocolate foil wrappings remains a constant in her work – not because of my love of chocolate – but rather her wholehearted appreciation of the material’s colour, texture, delicacy and strength. Simply, she unwraps one form and recreates another. And then repeat. And repeat.
