RAUNI HIGSON

Rauni works in a converted chapel overlooking the stunning Nantlle ridge, “I am inspired by the natural world, particularly the dramatic mountains and coastline of Snowdonia, where I live and work. I strive to capture something of it’s beauty without directly imitating it, creating pieces that look like they may have grown naturally, or evolved. I am also fascinated by capturing movement and flow in the seemingly unyielding medium of metal.I work with many techniques, but in particular ‘Fold-forming’; folding sheet metal, hammering and forging it, then opening out the piece to reveal the 3-dimensional form.”

Rauni studied in Finland for 3 years at Lahtl Design Institute then graduated in 1996 (BA Hons) after a final year at Birmingham School of Jewellery. She became a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in 2010, and has three pieces in the Goldsmiths' Company Modern Collection. Her special commissions include a Royal Wedding gift for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.
