Object Detail

“I research the differences between an acceptable notion of beauty or stereo-type, and something else – the search for an aesthetic that we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognise. I don’t want to make pieces that are easily steered through our established channels… I am continually pushing towards the extreme, and see this is a method which enables an expansion in thinking and ways of working… I make reactionary work, consciously active with influences from all walks of culture and life… I position my work around the history, future, and boundaries of jewellery. I make pieces for the future.”
