New Crete / SS15

The circular and linear shapes of my latest collection of everyday wear came about intuitively. I sat down with basic materials: hand saw, small sheets of brass, and a file. I allowed the process of creation itself to guide the overall design. My attempts to cut a perfect circle using only my eye as a compass became a meditation on intuitive understanding. Gradually, taking visual cues from early illustrations of lunar cycles, and the hand painted houses of the Kassena people, geometric circular patterns began to emerge. New Crete is an exercise in expressive geometry and “hand made” perfection that I hope echoes the notion of the Harmony of the Spheres. To quote Johannes Kepler: “the geometrical things have provided the Creator with the model for decorating the whole world."
