Catherine Hill

Inspired by landscapes and seascapes, natural objects and ancient jewellery I aim to evoke a sense of ancestry in something contemporary and wearable.

 

Alongside making I take photographs of all kinds of things that catch my eye... shapes, textures, patterns, elements of which

often present themselves within my jewellery.

 

I make a lot of one-off pieces, but items that are the 'same' are also unique. No two pieces are ever identical.

 

I use various techniques and processes, vitreous enamels and the versatile effects of the flame, working from my studio in a grade II listed former cotton mill.
