“For the past decade, my focus has been creating minimalist jewellery by hand-milling and hand-fabricating sterling silver. Prior to this, my studio saw a lot of different materials: mould-making and pouring of concrete, welding of metal, creating pieces using wood and fibre. The one constant?  I’ve always assembled objects three-dimensionally. As much as I enjoy the visual simplicity of works in precious metal, I’ve grown eager to once again incorporate other materials into my process. Over the past few months, I’ve been dragging more gutter rust and forest finds back to my work space, and the growing natural history collection is a sign that assemblage work has begun to creep back into my practice. Helping Emma stoke during shifts at her kiln has sparked a curiosity about wood firing, and the communal gathering of makers during the process has drawn me in. I recently took the leap to ask if I could create something using clay and participate in a firing. The result has been the stepping stone towards a new body of work. For ‘Homestead’, I’ve chosen to incorporate wood-fired elements, found objects and fabricated metals to create a small assortment of sculptural utensils called Forest Tools.”
