For 2014 I have set myself a daily act of motivational making. Every day I will make a new piece of jewellery for that day, a wearable diary entry and personal involvement of meditation. I have set no rules of any kind the pieces can take seconds or hours to make and can be made from anything I choose. It’s a making principle designed to create spontaneous experimental work that celebrate the moment of making, choosing materials, nominating objects and calling each piece ‘finished’. I am intrigued to see some results and learn, adapt and strengthen my work through the act of making with no distinguished goal.
My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit points.
For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world. I see my work as an anthology of objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it hard to explain other than: we find each-other.
