Peter Chang - Jewellery

Peter Chang combines jewellery with elements of sculpture to produce complex brightly coloured pieces which can be worn or can simply exist as objects in their own right.

He uses various coloured plastics, such as acrylic and PVC, to create his jewellery and furniture, and is influenced by nature and organic forms.

He trained at Liverpool College of Art and Slade School of Fine Art in London studying sculpture and printmaking.

Since 1966 Peter Chang has exhibited across the world including Paris, Munich, Berlin, Amsterdam, Prague, Venice, Japan, Montreal, South Korea, Philadelphia, Boston, New York and San Francisco, as well as across the UK.

His work is held in numerous public and private collections, including the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh.

He was the joint winner of the Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts in 1995, received a Creative Scotland Award from the Scottish Arts Council in 2000 and won the Herbert Hofmann Preis, Munich in 2003.
