"Everything from a shirt……to a necklace"
"These days we consume and discard, exploit and pollute at an extraordinary rate. These acts of consumerism,
exploitation and pollution result in environmental aberrations – toxic nightmares, hybrids and mutations.
Some of these are beautiful.
A fascination with this process, and with our tinkering with genetic manipulation and the possible resultant forms,
are the inspiration for this jewellery.
I cast weeds in silver and add blooms of toxic looking paint and resin.
The challenge is to bring together the uncomfortable and the seductive."
