Cameo is an ongoing series featuring Canadian jewellery artists. here, they share their latest thoughts and insights, and give us a peek into their practice.
Describe your current work/practice in one sentence.
My practice is to create metal pieces that represent the vibrancy and beauty that I perceive in nature.
What are three things/ideas that inspire you?
What other things do you do besides your jewellery practice?
I recently started cooking a lot. I enjoy sharing good food with people I love and it is a bigger pleasure to me when I’ve prepared the food. Also I find various colours, textures and shapes of cooking ingredients very inspiring.
What is a favourite piece you've made and why?
My favourite piece is a table object I made during my last year of school, called 'Fallen Leaves'. The techniques I used for this piece are very simple. I wanted to create an interesting larger piece with very basic traditional metal forming and colouring methods.
What word pops into your mind when you think of Canadian art jewellery?
What is coming up next for you?
I recently moved to Montréal which has the best winter in Canada. I am still settling into this new city but I am liking it here a lot so far. Hopefully I can find a good studio space soon and get to know some people in the art jewellery community here.
