Statement by the Artist:
All my work begins with the simple geometry of bowl forms and flat sheet. Applying traditional techniques such as hand piercing, drilling and soldering, enjoy working in a variety of metals, combining them in an exploration of colour and texture.
Having made functional silver tableware for years, my work is becoming increasingly abstract and less concerned with the traditional perceptions of function. My new work investigates the meeting of contrasting elements within a form. Simple, heavy and calm bowl forms are ‘interrupted’ by visually complex, open and delicate structures. The essence is in the dialogue, tension or collision that happens in that meeting point.
My work continues to explore the subjects of illusion and balance.
