I fell in love with amber at first sight. I was attracted to its beautiful, golden warmth, to the sense of history in its formation, and to the many cultures who value it as personal adornment and sculpture.
And, there is so much in amber; the play of light and its fluid, organic forms provide a window to the fascinating things inside. This fossilized tree resin will contain bits of bark, charcoal, plant seeds, air bubbles, tunnels formed by insects, and sometimes even the insects themselves.
I complement these natural elements with antiqued brass—hand-forged and roller printed into organic textures, or richly coloured with verdigris patina.
