Jonathan Boyd is an Artist and Jeweller working in a variety of material specialising in conceptual work and complex lost wax casting techniques. The works he creates and exhibits looks to explore the relationships between the sculptural, art, design and the wearable. To explore these relationships he use language and its connection with environment, the person and object as a set of complex narratives.

His works have now started to incorporate image and text with the imagery coming from photographs and films he makes in and around the city. Other narratives and themes that run through his work are, value, perception, craft, film and the digital.
