Ding

The ding jewellery is a body of work, which focuses on various metal alloys and the sounds they produce. The bell idea comes from a study of sounds and a great interest in sounds. As a goldsmith Josephine Winther is interested in addressing the audible aspect of metal. All the bell necklaces are made in different alloys and shaped by hand thus they are unique and produce different sounds. Josephine Winther says, ”We connect our inner world to the outer world through our senses. With ”ding” I have focused on the sense of hearing. As a child I had the great fortune to sit in the twilight with my grandmother, and let the day wander off into the evening. We would not talk, just sit in silence and enjoy the daylight disappear and the darkness arrive.I have examined a large range of sounds and have described them as if they were objects with a shape, a surface, texture, direction and intensity. I want the sounds to be perceived as objects moving around between us. My work is about listening “

Josephine Winther wants to draw people’s attention to the sounds, which she argues are all important whether they are conventionally beautiful or not. She also wants to make the link between sound and form, to encourage people to use both their eyes and their ears in selecting the bell necklaces.
