Cathy Sutherland

I draw inspiration from all things earthy and organic being intrigued by delicate insects, fragile skeleton leaves and human skin; as when studied closer you see that all are made up of intricate networks of lines and detailed patterns that create incredible natural surface decoration, which is reflected in my organic jewellery.

The curved fluid shapes of my jewellery have been created through the traditional silversmithing techniques of chasing and repoussé - repetitive rounds of hammering allow me to watch the forms gradually unfold in the metal, reflecting the movement of the body and repetitive patterns found in nature. For this collection I studied the Calla Lily with its magnificent beauty and connotations of purity, fertility and abundance.
