locket face closeup

"Thankyou to the Moon, for tidal treasures and rhythms of history”.
Like wearing lots of different elements from the places I've lived, as a way of keeping connected with my history.

The Locket ‘moon’ face came from my drawings of Victorian London shop signs, and inspired the contents which are a collection of objects collected at my favourite shoreline haunts. All objects have been collected from locations where ‘rubbish’ was dumped at the turn of the 19th-20th century and been exposed through subsequent tides and shaped by the forces of time and nature. The ‘tin’ inner faces are from reproduction tin of Victorian design and the back is engraved with OS grid references for the shoreline locations, in a handwritten style as if just freshly logged in a personal notebook.

Materials & processes;
Silver, bronze, copper, copper-plated steel chain, reclaimed ‘tin’ packaging, enamel, vintage buttons, vintage glass beads, 1941 ha’penny coin, beach glass, beach pottery. Repousse, cloisonné, pressformed, constructed, silver soldered, punched, chased, riveted, engraved, oxidised

"Hi Bruce, I admire how provocative you are about ACC and it was interesting to read about the "dinosaurs." However, I think old women artists are "discovered" more often in their older age. The latest issue in the Wall Street…"
