Repetition (investigation through sculptural jewellery)
10,000 hours of practice is often cited as key to becoming a master craftsperson, leading to skill and tacit understanding, and the freedom to experiment and attain more.
To understand repetition as part of craft practice I hand-made hundreds of wooden beads (cutting, sanding, drilling, colouring, polishing), stringing them in traditional formations.
They have been exhibited at Hotel Elephant, Japanese Embassy London and London Design Festival, among others. Please contact me for loans/sales.
