Whilst in the past I have had success with my illustrations on ceramic jewellery, after completing my MA in 2015, where I created large-scale wooden sculptures, I was keen to find a middle ground which was less restrictive and more unpredictable. I stepped away from the recognisable scale and forms of jewellery to work freely in terms of size and shape. It intrigues me to see where it will go without being too prescriptive in my decisions. After working in clay, wood and metal I have an opportunity to diverge into all, whilst using the skill base I have built up over the years.
My influences mainly come from nature and architecture, but anything that makes me stop and look twice is noted and inspirations travel through many sketchbooks for years until a physical entity becomes apparent. I enjoy pushing an idea through numerous changes; it is all meant to be playful and joyful, whilst equally making my brain work hard to make it a successful outcome, whatever form that may take.
