My work is influenced by theories surrounding the Human Condition. Through the exploration of my past experiences, I design contemporary wearable objects with the intention of creating a dialogue between the viewer and wearer about their own realities.
‘Harbouring Memory’ is a brooch series inspired by memory loss and the yearning to connect with the past. The work takes inspiration from my local harbour, a place key to family life and a place where I go to reflect. These brooches use the visual metaphors of distorted net patterns and weathered enamel to reference the fading and loss of memory.
