Maker's statement

Of this particular group: Three signature pieces. I've been exploring moving rings for the last five years, investigating scale, weight, type of movement, occasion, as object etc. All pieces represent a snapshot of material/colour/technique choice. I'm almost solely interested in transluscent colour at the moment.
