FRANCESCA FLYNN

My interest in the combination of art and science combined with a childhood fascination with rocks and fossils led me to experiment with crystal growth.  I used this initially as a visual source, which then developed as a method and material for creating work.  The vivid blue hue of copper sulphate crystals inspired the colour of resin for this collection.  My work explores the beauty and impermanence of crystals that I have grown and the fragility of natural crystals. I recreate these forms in resin and metal to make my own amalgamated formations which become stable, wearable objects.
