Catchpole, Bridget

About the artist
Bridget Catchpole is a studio jeweller and multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. From empty beauty product packaging to plastic remnants collected along the Pacific Northwest Coast, Catchpole incorporates castoff materials affording them equal value to traditional gemstones. Currently, her work looks at patterns of plastic waste from throwaway culture and how it has become a pervasive presence in the natural environment. These self-harvested materials become a departure point for broader topics, tracing back to a partiality involving worth and waste, blurring notions of what is precious, valuable and lasting.
