Fragments Make The Whole

Posted on September 27, 2009 at 9:55am 0 Comments

My current work is created from fragments of observation and perception of my environment. I record images during my daily journeys around the city streets of Oxford. Ornamentation and wealth is combined with alternative encounters in the city: graffiti, road kill, rubbish and road markings.



My jewellery consists of these images, which have been cut from old steel cans and fused together. In turn these whole pieces become fragments of new images, reminiscent of ornamental ironwork or… Continue

Hi Tamsin!  Of course, I know who you are!  How are you? So great to see you on Crafthaus!  I am just signing on and will probably start posting more in the next week or so.  So busy!

Got it in one! I met Elizabeth at a conference in Western Australia last year - I did her workshop which was amazing - so I'm really looking forward to getting over to the CFPR. I'll be there from the beginning of March, and I'll be going over to Schmuck too, and I finish at the end of the month. Hopefully catch you in Germany, if not in the UK?

Tamsin, your pieces are gorgeous too. I hadn't thought to enamel onto my recycled pieces, I was thinking of using some laser-cut steel works instead. I'm going to be in the UK soon for a residency, specifically to learn more about enamelling. Is there somewhere I can see your work?

Thank you. Angela, Polly and I are off to Bath next Tuesday to check out a possible venue for July. Will let you know how it goes. Hope all is well. Hopefully see you at some point soon : )
