During my time studying at London Metropolitan University I was inspired to try
to make metal take on a different, softer quality, to assume the appearance of
flowing lava or satin. The resulting technique I developed results in organic,
random patterns within each piece of work. The metal has a very tactile quality
and it is extremely satisfying to trace the ribbons of metal as they interlock
with one another to form a kind of web.
The method I use does not involve traditional silversmithing techniques, but
it does allow me a great deal of flexibility in my work. It is easily adaptable
and equally suitable for small pieces of jewellery and much larger items such
as a centre piece for a table.
