About this project

Inspired by my parallel practice of printmaking, working in 2 dimensions,  observing and abstracting the textures, contours and patterns of the landscape.  Traditional etching methods were used in these pieces, and in addition further experimentation and happy accidents gave me inspiration for my own markmaking techniques. The warmth of copper and brass contrasts with grey metallic silver and I have also used aluminium and varnish on larger hanging pieces, using rivets & solder to join metals.

Copper, Sterling Silver and Moonstone with brass rivets. An experimental piece which involved superimposing an existing piece onto an etched copper landscape using brass rivets. The work was selectively patinated and can be worn as a large pendant or hung on a wall.
