A range of textured, printed and hand dyed aluminium

 

Inspired by plants and flowers and their natural luring mechanisms for insects to their pollen, this range is designed to attract the eye to the wearer through colour. 

I print a vibrant selection of my nature photographs onto the metal, followed by dyeing with a chosen palette of bright or subtle background colours to complement or contrast the print colours.  A selection of vein inspired textures pressed into the aluminium give the pieces a leaf or petal like quality.  My 'Goddess' range of hammer formed aluminium include shapes that evoke its inspiration of plant seed pods.
