Garden Spoons

About this project

This project started a few years ago when I was renovating my garden.  There was a lot of domestic waste buried there and I kept unearthing tools and cutlery.  I work in both precious and base metals, and sitting in my garden workshop, I began to think about what was precious, e.g. the natural environment and my relationship as a jeweller and silversmith to it.  This led me to combine materials from the garden with precious metal(silver) and also to look again at garden tools in this context.
