Rocky Coast

‘Rocky Coast’

Developed from the same base designs as the ‘Sand and Stone’ collection ‘Rocky Coastline’ uses the enamelling technique I developed for the statement necklace ‘Blue Tangle’ in my graduate collection ‘High Tide’. The enamel on these items have ‘firescale’ fired into the surface and the varying firing times have created different blends of white, grey, black and blue.
Unlike my other collections, I see ‘Rocky Coast’ as embodying aspects of all British beaches rather than being based on a specific coastline. The surface pattern is evocative of more than one aspect of these beaches – it might make one think of the shadows between rocks and reflections in rockpools or it may appear as seaweed sitting on the surface of the still waters.
