Sculptor & Silversmith
My subject is the natural environment. I live and work in rural Herefordshire in the UK. My studio overlooks orchards, hills and woodland. Walking is an essential part of my day; looking at the landscape and the details within it, the changes through the year, the constant fragile cycle of growth, decay, renewal.
I make objects using re-cycled precious and non-precious metals and ‘found’ materials. I work intuitively and experimentally, allowing and encouraging the innate characteristics of the medium to emerge. The materials I work with are chosen and combined to evoke and challenge the relationship we have with the natural world and our perceived values of the resources we use; as ‘raw’ material I value a tin-can as much as a sheet of silver.
Central to my practice is to make my work in as an environmentally and ethically responsible way as possible. Please go to the Environment & Ethics page for more information.
