Sonance - Vocal Formations

  • Viewing found natural objects through the perspective of speech, language & sound, I find inspiration in my environment and across the country. From this, these pieces draw their contour and fluidity, exploring the relationship between conversation & artistic visualization.
     
    Aesthetically, the work is a result of fusing traditional metalsmithing & enamelling techniques with alternative materials. The resin forms appear to emit sound, and the silver traces its path. Uniting language inspired design, rich colour, and organic texture and form, my jewellery bridges multiple senses, inviting the viewer to experience sound in a visual and tactile way.
