Although trained as a graphic designer and sculptor at the Liverpool College of Art, Peter Chang turned to jewelry making in the 1980s - his forms are over-sized, the colors vibrant and the finishes immaculate. Plastic and recycled acrylics are his materials of choice and most appropriately reflect the influence of the Pop Art culture prevalent during his youth in Liverpool.
