"As the owner of not one but three Seed bowls, I thoroughly recommend 👌they're more gorgeous than can justifiably be captured by camera, and they are a delight to hold" - a happy customer
These bowls are my contemporary take on aging and patination. The enameling process I use means each bowl is unique with a natural feel to it, this is what really appeals to me.
The contrast between the enamel and the copper makes these bowls very satisfying to handle, which is important to my work; my designs should be equally as pleasing to use, hold, and look at.
The bowls were finalists in the National Trust/Crafts Council Open Call 2017 - see here
During the enameling process the copper oxidises (blackens) and while the enamel will not change, the black will gradually lessen over time, returning to its original copper colour.
The Triplets are a development from the original Milk Jug, Sugar Bowl and Spoon set created in 2017. I wanted to explore the design further, inspired by sleek minimalist designs of Modernism, and this little set have the same main form but each has their own personality.
I am interested in the relationship my pieces have with each other, how they are rigid yet have a sense of association when placed in their groupings, connecting with their counterparts. The pieces have a matt finish to the exterior which looks warm and inviting to handle, allowing the viewer to physically interact with each piece as it is important to me that my pieces are as good to use as they are to hold, and to look at.

In 2017 I was asked to submit a design for a gin tasting beaker, one of 25 emerging silversmiths asked to do so by the Goldsmiths Centre. We all had the same starting point of a spun silver beaker, the same size, but other than that we had free reign with our designs.
I was lucky enough to be one of the 20 silversmiths to be commissioned to create our designs for the exhibition Made for the Table, a selling showcase to run alongside the main touring exhibition at the Goldsmiths Centre in London. Details of all 20 beakers here
You can see how I developed my design for the “Still Beaker” from the initial brief here

This fine silver whiskey tumbler has a thick 2mm rim and heavy rounded bottom, meaning it rocks gently when nudged but will always self-right, never spilling a drop. Gilded inside to give a lovely golden glow, this tumbler's rounded form feels fantastic in the hand, and wonderful to drink from. The perfect accompaniment to your favourite tipple.
The surface is plannished but marks are left in the silver to indicate the making process for this tumbler, which was raised by hand from flat sheet, and it gives a wonderful reflective quality to the exterior.

This tall beaker is the perfect vesel for a longer drink - is it gin o’clock yet?

These deceptively comfortable to wear structural rings were created by manipulating flat sheets of metal to form rings which have a sculptural quality. The silver versions have been created using an engraved silver salver which was presented to an architect for 25 years of service, back in 1984. You can see small elements of the engraved message on the underneath of the ring, a hint to its previous life and the ultimate in recycling/re-purposing.
Modernist and Brutalist architecture strongly influence my design aesthetic.

Gilding Metal. Platinol.
The Bespoke Havana Ring
In 2016 a client commissioned a ring for his wife, to celebrate a special occasion. His rather short brief was that he liked my 'structural rings', so I asked if there were any particular landmarks which held special meaning to him and his wife. He suggested the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception, in Havana.
Although I replicated the outline of the front of the Cathedral, this easy to wear ring doesn't have an immediate visual link to it’s inspiration, keeping the origins of the design as a special secret between the client and his wife.

The Seamstress began life as a flat sheet of copper. Once the 'seam' has been created the metal is manipulated using my hands with various steel and wooden stakes to create a fluid wave shape.
Patina is applied to the inside, giving a contrast between the cold smooth exterior and the warm and subtly textured interior. The cold connection was inspired by stitched seams seen in textiles and also some construction processes.
A stylish yet understated sculpture, the Seamstress will fit quietly into any interior.

This large fruit platter with simple yet bold lines has been created from a single sheet of copper, pierced and manipulated to create this Stingray shape. A patina was applied to the underneath to create a contrast of finish and textures.
Designed to be a centerpiece it looks equally as good placed at eye level.
Can be made any size, please contact to discuss

Brogue shoes are a traditional choice of footwear in England and a handmade pair can consist of 128 elements. This inspired me to use those elements as the starting point of my Browl project (Brogue Bowl). Using paper maquettes I would multiply the elements and piece together in different ways to create new 3D forms. Once I had a resolved design I tested it in metal to see how it translated into the new medium. I used my hands to manipulate the form on stakes to help achieve the shape. It is not immediately obvious to the viewer that the bowl has derived from an element of the brogue, so I added the detail of drilled holes as per a brogue pattern as a subtle hint to its origins.
This Browl has been in an exhibition at Norwich Castle Museum, received the accolade of Highly Commended in the Marshwood Arts Awards 2017. The copper predecessor was entered in to The Goldsmiths Craft and Design competition 2014/2015, and was chosen to be exhibited among the award winners at Goldsmiths Hall during March 2015

The Brogue Dish
This two sided dish was inspired by the classic brogue. Pierced from a flat sheet of copper with holes drilled to represent the toe patterns seen on brogues, then manipulated to form this symmetric shape. Oxidised and scrubbed back to give the appearance of worn leather, like an old faithful pair of brogues.

Stylish and contemporary, this easy to wear collection is made from sterling silver with brass accents. The surface of the brass will change colour over time, becoming more like the moons surface and contrasting with the silver. Or it can be polished back to its shiny 'gold' appearance. Can also be made in a silver and gold version.
