May 2022

This is a recent commission of a pendant that I sand casted and hand engraved. Always exploring new methods to achieve my designs. The design was inspired by the Nebra Sky Disc recently exhibited at the British Museum. Frequently I have read how the natural world influences all kinds of craftsmanship and design but as well as natural forms, for me the Bronze Age finds its way into my work in all sorts of ways. The patination of the metal for a start influences the colour glazes that I enjoy using in my ceramics.

On the next pendant I hope to throw some stones into the mix using gold for the bezel of the settings. Once I was introduced to bimetal there was no way back for me!

Some new pots to go onto my etsy shop soon...
