Concepts
I am a practising metalsmith, using precious and non-precious metals, and leatherworker, working mainly with hide. The two areas occasional meet to combine metal and leather, however, at the moment I develop work separately in the two disciplines. The techniques I use in metal can inform how I work in leather and vice versa. My metalsmithing MA research has explored the qualities of texture
and form that I enjoy in both leather and ceramics. I have used these qualities in my work to express emotion. My current range of leathergoods investigates form without losing sight of function. The underlying theme of emotion is present in both disciplines.
