‘Flight’ Collection

This concept came about after talking to a regular customer. Years ago I made a collection of automated objects in silver & slate, scenes that came to life when their little handles were turned. Grasses swayed in the breeze, a Noah’s ark bobbed in the waves, ducks swam amongst bullrushes etc some of which were commissions but some I couldn’t bring myself to sell as they meant too much to me & they remain on display in our boutique. I’d been wanting to revisit them & after our chat about sadly loosing both of her parents, I suggested a new kind of vessel to store ashes that would signify flight within each scene. Again using silver & slate, the ashes could be held within the silver & slate box. I’ve loved working on these can’t wait to explore their potential with not only storing ashes but for christening gifts (I could work to any theme), wedding or anniversary gifts or just as objects for the home.
