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.
