I am in my final year of 3d design at the University of Wolverhampton. I am a metal smith, and I design and make metal vessels from brass and silver. My vessel designs are usually flat sided pieces ranging from hexagons up to dodecagons. The inspiration for my vessels comes from the life of Fred Dibnah, therefore my research imagery comes from visits to Victorian and industrial sites. My imagery includes steam engines and factories. My vessels are heavily influenced by my research especially the lids for my vessels because they include details such as lips and rivets. My different designs vary in height and width. There are a number of processes used in the production of one pieces such as soldering, and fly pressing.
Through my practice I aim to intrigue and reflect a feeling of magic and enchantment. I am inspired by crowns and coronets which initially came from my interest in Lewis Carol and his tales of Alice in Wonderland. I am also inspired by buildings, castles and fairytale imagery. I look at interesting methods of construction and unique ways of wearing pieces. My designs are decorative and colourful using precious and semi precious stones. My work reflects me and my passion for embellishment, colour and individuality.
I target women, young and old. Those who enjoy colourful jewellery and like something a bit unique.
Inspired by ordinary kitchen knives I have designed a series of ambient 3D objects, available as a table, wall, ceiling and floor light in various colours. They are made of fluorescent edge acrylic, cut into 12 interlocking elements. Each lamp is supplied with four ultra bright LEDs.
My work is a reflection on the world around me, I love to travel and explore the unknown. My work is strongly influenced by architecture, which has always been my passion. I am also fascinated by organic forms and the pure beauty which comes from nature. For me designing is fun, it's a way of creating potential in ordinary.
My work focuses on the creation of singular pieces of jewellery that the wearer can adjust independently. Each neckpiece or brooch has four alternative etched inserts that can be placed inside an inner sleeve, providing the wearer with the opportunity to subtly change the look of their jewellery to suit a particular mood or occasion.
Working with simple geometric forms in silver, complemented by oxidised copper and gilding metal detailing. My inspiration for this particular range comes from the reflections and images framed by windows and the theme of the four seasons depicted by etched scenery and objects of nature.
