FOLD EARRINGS (LONG)

The long FOLD earrings are bolder and more architectural than the other styles in the series. Despite their visual strength they have similarities to the delicate patterns found in Cicada wings. These earrings are available in brass and silver.

The FOLD series

The FOLD series borrows from the structures that give coral and kale leaves their patterns - called hyperbolic surfaces. The series is made using a physics simulation based on crocheting, only instead of adding stitches each row the algorithm adds springs to the surface.

FOLD EARRINGS (SHORT)

The short FOLD earrings are more organic and sculptural than their longer counterparts. They more closely resemble the natural shapes they are inspired by and show off their delicate form from every angle. These earrings are available in brass.

FOLD NECKLACE

The FOLD necklace is as delicate as at is striking. The strong three dimensional form of these necklaces is balance between the man-made and the organic. These necklaces are available in nylon, brass and sterling silver.

VEIN PENDANT

The VEIN pendants are the most closely related to nature of all the pieces. They are reminiscent of autumn leaves that have faded away until all that's left is a delicate web of veins.

The VEIN series

The patterns of the VEIN series mimic the way a leaf forms it's own veins. The program tries to copy the same biochemical process that nature uses. The intricate complex patterns created look random but actually follow a strict set of rules.

WAVE BROOCH

The WAVE brooches are laser cut and engraved bamboo. They create an illusion of depth from the abstract patterns taken from sound, speech and music.

The WAVE series

Each piece in the WAVE series takes sound as it's seed, a piece of music or a clip of human speech for example. A piece of software abstracts and blends the waves and vibrations from that seed to create the complex shapes and patterns used in each piece.

VEIN BROOCH

The VEIN brooches have a natural and organic feel tempered by a touch of the man-made. Although based on the growth of leaf veins they look as much like the streets and highways of a major city from above as they do the veins of something organic.

ANTHESIS BROOCH

The delicate ANTHESIS brooches are made from 3D printed nylon and are available in a variety of bright colours.

The ANTHESIS series

Anthesis is the period of time in which a flower is fully open. The forms created in the ANTHESIS series are modelled on the growth of succulent plants.

DEATHSHEAD MOTH BROOCH

The deathshead moth brooch is the only piece designed in a traditional way and also the only piece that is not a one-off. This was the first design I ever made and is an intensely personal piece for me, reminding me of my love of nature and of beauty found in the over-looked.
