2010 Brooch Sterling silver, hematite, steel, oxidised 72 x 90 x 15mm Edition 1 of 1
These things that never were is one of the later, more elegant works from Melancholy Series, which poetically explores notions of beauty, nostalgia and passing time. These jewellery pieces question how the creation of objects can guide or replace memory. As intimate objects, Melancholy Series alludes to forms found in nature, while deliberately abstracting them to de-familiarise the familiar. This collection embodies pathos, often evoking strong feelings of melancholy through an almost alien or foreign lens.
