Living on the Isles of Scilly provides endless inspiration for my work. Combining the coastal elements with contemporary design, I love to experiment with texture and sculptural form by bringing the island landscape into the creative process through a variety of methods including unique casting processes, forging and finishing techniques using the local granite, sand and seawater.
Each collection is intentionally created with different techniques. For example the Granite is beaten and textured by the rock itself, the Ocean's form is created through seawater casting, the Beach is brushed with emery papers I make from the local sand. I like the idea of all the collections being different but connected through their Scillonian identity... much like our five islands here; they all vary so much but are equally as special.
The rocks, the sand, the sea… and the treasures found in between.
