Jewellers Lin Cheung & Laura Potter have been working on a collaborative commission: Pas de deux.
The project is part of museumaker, a national partnership between makers, museums and visitors involving 16 museums across the country. Work in progress for their project at mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) will go on show next week. The overall project will finish in March 2011 with a main show at mima, plus installations at two other local museums.
They are making pieces for two local residents, based on a series of interviews and object-centred discussions. These pieces will be made twice, with one being given to the commissioner and one going to the jewellery collection at mima. Take a look at the commission process so far by visiting;
