Sculptural Textiles: Unique sculptural 3d wall art and silver and copper knitted wire jewellery.
As a textile artist I work almost exclusively with metal. Combining knitting with metalworking skills I like to create fairly sculptural work.
For the last 15 years, I have produced unique knitted silver and copper wire jewellery with great structure and sculptural form. My work this year has taken me away from wearable art and I am now creating sculptural wall art. It is really exciting to be travelling on a new path, using the same and some new skills to produce work inspired by the sea and the shapes and forms of the plants around me.
Knitted wire lends itself very well to manipulation which provides great scope for folding and forming different and interesting shapes that have the added pleasure of producing fantastic shadows as the light changes.
