My colour is inspired by wanting challenge the preconceptions of, and bring new appreciation to, what the colours of precious metals are, especially ‘gold’ and the various carats. Also, I consider my work as small-scale, 3d objects, one doesn’t just look at it from any single angle. By creating my own alloys and tonal ranges it hopefully adds another element that keeps the viewer eyes engaged, moving and interested.
