Jewellery Jewellery Jewellery, oh and occasionally some ceramics.

Ever since i can remember i have always had the urge to create things. As a child i was always drawing or sewing items of clothing for my toys. I guess i wanted them to look a little different from your average toy and therefor wanted them to be special. And thats how i feel when i have made an item.
I discovered metal clay a few years after completing my studies in silversmithing and goldsmithing at The Kent Institute of Art and Design in Rochester (now UCL) in 1995.
I love the workability of metal clay and how ceramics techniques can be used to shape the material. Then once fully fired traditional metal smithing techniques such as hammering, soldering and filing can be implemented to finish the piece. I often use surface ornamentation techniques such as patination, which uses chemical reaction to colour the metal surface.
Natural structures, forms and beauty of nature are my main influences but my work tends to develop gradually through the making process rather than sketching ideas to begin with.

Wearing a unique piece of jewellery or owning one off ceramics is a feeling you simply cannot replicate with mass-produced pieces.
