Hazel Thorn

Through workshop experimentation with base and precious metals,  I construct sheets whose patterns are created by their methods of assembly. The sculptural vessels formed from these respond to the structure of the sheet. A single chemical patina applied to the whole object affects the metals in different ways, producing contrasting colours which highlight these distinct areas.

My pieces are intended as three-dimensional snapshots of motion, capturing a sense of growth, liveliness and poise.
