Originally with a background in decorating my interest in interiors and design has developed rapidly in recent years. In particular I wanted to see how stone could be used to make discrete or statement features, wall pieces, free standing objects and even items for personal adornment.
My design ideas come from geological structures, a minimalist design ethos and unplanned inspiration. I also want to bring to eye level the beauty and textures inherent in Welsh slate, a material so often used for flooring etc. The ability to cleave or split slate expanded the versatility of this sexy lithified mudstone. Other working methods revolve around wet cutting and finishing.
I also have a new range of elegant and beautiful slate jewelry in the form of pendants which are suitable for both sexes.
