Yunus and Elizabeth

Artist Yunus Ascott and sculptor Eliza Higginbottom met in 2007 whilst casting precious metals in one of the last surviving specialist foundries in London.

it was a meeting of minds that led to their launch of their eponymous brand, the latest collection of which is displayed here.

Influenced by 'fairytales and the surreal, metamorphosis and hybrids' they create 'miniature sculptures to be worn'. Each piece is entirely handmade at the same foundry where the pair met back in the day.
