Jayne Redman’s work begins with simple repeated shapes which she forms into wearable sculpture. Her work is a combination of design, mechanics, and artistry. She draws inspiration from the lines and volumes found in nature and flower forms.
“Many years of metalsmithing have taught me the power of simplicity. My forms begin as flat metal shapes and arrive as small sculptures. Their complexity is in their conception as curving planes of origami.”
Jayne Redman earned her B.F.A. in Jewelry and Silversmithing from Maine College of Art in 1977. Her work is included in publications such Art Jewelry Today and 21st Century Jewelry, and she is the recipient of numerous design awards including two Niche Awards and a Saul Bell Award. Jayne began her jewelry career in the fashion jewelry industry in New York as a design and production assistant, and started her own company in 1982. She is a former faculty member of the Maine College of Art Department of Jewelry and Metals, and still teaches workshops nationally including her own Jayne Redman Studio in Westbrook, Maine.
