Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery
Tessellating Wall Tiles
Reconstituted marble carvings
13 x 15.5 x 4 cm
I am interested in identifying then reinterpreting place, time and individual personalities. Retold stories juxtapose historical and modern themes from an alternative perspective through objects, jewellery and the way these works are experienced by others.
I work with a range of materials and techniques which are sympathetic to their purpose. Each series is unified, in particular through use of traditional hand-carving methods, enhanced by taking advantage of emerging digital technologies.
