Jackie Roberts | Metal Artist

Back to Gozo Artisans

“I create decorative, functional and wearable art in metal from my private studio/workshop in Xewkija. Crossing the boundaries of art and craft I use traditional metalworking techniques to make contemporary, collectable, hand-crafted pieces with a distinctive style.

Inspired by culture, nature and travel, using my imagination to interpret the world around me, I work in copper, mild steel and brass using hand and power tools to cut, shape and mark, then bring out the natural hues of the metal by artistic burning. I often incorporate scrap metal, found objects, fabric, driftwood, stone, sea glass, pottery and plant material into my work reincarnating what others have thrown away.

I undertake private commissions and show my work at select venues around the Maltese islands and overseas. I have been awarded a Malta Crafts Council prize for innovation and creativity and have taken part in many collective and group exhibitions and staged solo exhibitions on the Maltese Islands and overseas.  I was delighted to be included in Vol. 1 of ‘The Artists’ Directory Malta’ featuring 100 top contemporary artists.  My work has been collected by clients worldwide.”

Studio Visits and Workshops

Visitors are welcome to view my work by appointment and I also undertake pre-booked taster (3 hours), one day and three day metal art workshops for groups of 1-3 students over 14 years old. Workshops are conducted in English.  All safety equipment, tools and materials provided.
