Chloe Valorso is an award-winning graduate from Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. She is the current Cockpit Clear Awardee and took up her place with us in April 2021.
With the launch of the 2022 Cockpit Clear Bursary – now open for applications – we’d like to celebrate Chloe’s progress.
Using jewellery as a shamanic language, Chloe’s pieces act as amulets, empowering the wearer through their compelling symbolic qualities and deep sense of history. She aims to inspire a reconnection to the self, one another and our environment in the witching hours of the 21st century.
Chloe won the RCA Onno Boekhoudt Travel award in 2018 to complete a Shamanic Breathwork training in Bali permitting her to combine her spiritual practices with craft to offer immersive experiences. She was awarded the International Graduate Prize from Gallery MARZEE. She exhibits internationally with her galleries : Intro MARZEE in the Netherlands, Mint in London, Oh My Blue in Venice, Tereza Seabra in Lisbon and Alice Floriano in Porto Alegre, Brazil. She is part of the collective The Pool in Amsterdam.
Her work has been shown at Collect at Somerset House, the Jewellery Biennale and has curated shows for Munich & New York City Jewellery Weeks.
