I create cutlery, tools and utensils, utilising found objects as handles. The found objects are old, forgotten and often insignificant, they are the physical aspect of work that is based on an emotional, nostalgic concept. The cutlery, tools and utensils are made from copper or sterling silver, they are either enamelled, textured, polished or oxidised, therefore rendering them impractical for everyday use, but giving them a new role as a piece of decorative art that will, hopefully , prompt an emotional response.
I also work with clay and the vessels are hand built using the coiling method from a smooth stoneware body. They are glazed and decorated with decals and gold lustre and often given an old, found lid or handle.
