This two-week residency, has been created through the generous support of an anonymous donor, specifically to support a crafts person in the design and creation of new work. Josh Bitelli was the 2013 Jacobs Ladder resident.

Mirka Janeckova is a jeweller and a recent graduate from the Silversmithing and Jewellery department at Glasgow School of Art.

She considers her pieces to be  metaphorical containers for their wearer’s emotions, memories and hopes and currently experiments with ‘white’ materials such as porcelain, silver, aluminium and textile, exploring their reflective and light absorbing qualities.

At Cove Park Janeckova intends to further her research into materials that react to light, touch and sound combining this with Arduino technology.
