This work is inspired both by fractals and Fibonacci sequences. I hope to create a sense of familiarity to nature using maths.

Using a technique i call propane forming, these cups are shot at a rock and crumple on impact. They are made from pure silver 999 and have gold plated interiors.
Watch the cups being shot and crumpled in ultra slow motion, 22,500fps on my YouTube account

Before and after
I have worked on some projects for stately homes. I made some iron leaves in the ‘Tijou’ style to replace about 40 leaves on the Golden Gate at Chatsworth House. I then made some gold plated silver salad severs in the same style.
I also made some double sided ‘Wild men’ to top a gate at Grimsthorpe castle
