About

My work explores the relationship between people and artefacts to establish a lasting connection through function, scale and intrigue. My pieces are created predominantly from silver, copper and brass along with woods such as Ash and Jarrah. Using hammer techniques such as raising and forging along with construction, I create vessel forms and spoons of varying scale. I use hammer marks and oxidisation to create different surface textures and visual interest.
