Oxidised silver, stainless steel




Ancient artisans broke down the natural world around them into patterns and motifs. The jewellery and art objects they created come out of the ground as though they grow down there. Living in Athens, these become my replacement for the natural world I grew up with in Australia.

I take these simple pattern elements, borrowing from vase and amphora and rhyton, and replicate them infinitely.
Using these as pattern puzzle pieces, I can build a nature of my own, drawing on the flora of my memories and my home, but built using the visual language of those artisans.
