Poppy Porter's Profile
As an artist and jeweller I specialise in working with unusual techniques, materials and inspirations. Working in titanium, other reactive metals, precious metals and a self developed photo-inlay technique I create wearable sculptural pieces. My work is inspired by the speed, beauty and precision design of Formula 1 cars, the opulence of Tudor and Stuart lace cuffs and the colour and layering of Japanese kimono. All photographs I use in my inlay are taken by me and pushed through a digital translation process to become a jewel.
I work closely with digital images and use those images in both two and three dimensions. I create pieces of small sculpture wearable as personal adornment and Photopaintings in limited editions.
The original images in both my painting and jewellery becomes part of the new work dissipating its original coherence…
