Opticks

Jewellery? It’s all in your perspective.

The inter-relationships – connections and tensions – between science and art have been an ongoing source of inspiration. Not just the disciplines, their immediate concerns and broader contexts, but also how together they affect the way I think about and operate in the world. My studies in contemporary jewellery have provided an additional lens through which to explore and frame these interests. A lens which promotes reflection, refraction, inflection and results in outputs that can stray towards the edges.

Opticks is a sideways look at my practice and process. It started with a contemplation of my journey from science to contemporary jewellery, and the experiences, inspirations, and discoveries that have continued to pave the way. With the snip of an idea sparked by a volumetric flask loosely bearing my name, a curiosity about the craft of glass blowing, and an ongoing preoccupation with the concept of transformation (in all its many guises), a body of work started to take form.
