    Brooch. 20K gold, labradorite, coral, ruby, ebony, silver, ostrich egg-shell (coloured)

    "This small brooch, featuring a spectrum of coloured mosaic, behind a strange, mathematically-inclined, mechanical goose, was actually designed to test a newly-developed technique of ostrich egg-shell mosaic.
    "In Mozart’s unfinished opera, 'L’Oca del Cairo', K.422, the goose serves the plot much in the same manner as does the Wooden Horse of Troy in the legend. Here in the jewel, the goose, carved from labradorite and coral with a glinting ruby eye, is seemingly propelled by golden clockwork in a sort of exo-skeleton – the comical effect of a walking-talking goose belying the fierce loyalty of one of nature’s most proven security-guards – and no doubt helping to explain why the opera remained incomplete…"

It is in part this mammalian familiarity, combined with the coveted gift of flight – and that practised in the dark secrecy of nocturnalism, with wings worn with all the elegant style of an opera-cloak – which has helped make them irresistible to our imaginations.
    "Over the years, I have frequently modelled and carved bats, bat-wings, and bat-creatures, which, not unlike the half-light they inhabit, are a kind of metamorph between states or between species, but the idea for this particular, rather junior, member of ‘genus vampirus’ was sparked when I came across the egg-shaped garnet, with its liquid, sanguine, tones – a covetous drop of blood indeed."

    Pendant section: 2.25" high x 5" wide

    "At first glance, the image is of two small red fish swimming before us; but they are not fish, and this is no longer water. The moment in Time which surprised them, with their fins erect and functioning, occurred long ago – so long ago, 180 million years, that it is beyond our store of time-understanding fully to comprehend. It was a moment of chance, of Kairos, which curtailed their short lives, and by geological process held their fugitive image captive and sleeping until it was released by the paleontologist’s hammer an aeon later. The same slab of once-mud-now-stone in all probability contains other hidden existences, but it is this revealed fish couple which I have adopted. I have made their ‘living’ portraits in gold and moonstone, swimming through a loop of dawn-pink pearls, to make an articulated neckpiece, and the opening ‘page’ of this, assembled, Book of Time."

Known for his technical brilliance and the symbolic imagery of his work, Kevin Coates is considered by many to be Britain’s leading artist-goldsmith. A true Renaissance Man, Coates is also a musician specializing in the baroque mandolin and has performed in concerts and recitals throughout Europe as well as a mathematician; his PhD thesis was titled, A study of the use of Geometry and Proportional systems in the Art of Lutherie. He focuses on the spiritual meanings of jewelry and draws inspiration from music, theater, painting, literature and mathematics. Neither exclusively modern nor wholly traditional, Coates’ work dazzles us with its technical virtuosity and inspires us with its symbolic imagery.

Statement

Kevin Coates Portrait

I approach all my output with what I see as the spirit of the jewel, whether it is to be worn, to be held and used, or placed on a table. It is the mental approach of the Goldsmith, one catholic in technique, and omnivorous of material. The opportunity and ability to work through the deep treasury of precious gems, minerals, and metals is an enormous privilege, and, at times, a true confrontation with ‘prima materia’ – with the very elements of Creation. This extensive ‘palette of absolutes’ is something to which I am constantly drawn, to express the ideas that continue to haunt the different stratas of my mind: a search for the music within the silence, the movement within the stillness, and the eternal moment within the relentless dynamic of time. It is always a pursuit of the metaphor which will first ‘connect’, then enshrine, the meaning to provoke that essential journey of response in others – and like that of the alchemist, it is a quest for the transcendental, one where the Stone’s achievement lies in the ensoulment of the object itself.

Quotes:

“… a man whose work fascinated me for its complexity, astonishing technical virtuosity, sophistication of allusion, and unashamed richness of a kind which would have delighted a Medici Grand Duke.” Sir Roy Strong

“Coates is Britain’s leading artist-goldsmith, with a renaissance imagination and an ingenuity to match” The TIMES

“At every level, Coates is a master of the imagination, and can balance the proverbial angels on the head of a pin” The International Herald Tribune

“His work seems to belong to the world of the “Wunderkammer”. There is little doubt that Coates will be deemed one of the most remarkable jewellers-cum-goldsmiths to have emerged at the end of the 20th century” Financial Times

“There is no-one in England to compare with his genius” CRAFTS

“A perfectly executed mix of artistic skill and interpretation to be seen to be believed” The SUNDAY TIMES
