Ann’s memories have formed the way she think’s and feel’s and the way in which she works. The found objects she use’s with the metal and clay, small and insignificant, used and forgotten, are the physical aspect of work that is based on an emotional, nostalgic concept.
Tools and utensils, the things we use and work with every day, are often taken for granted, easy to discard and replace with newer versions.
Ann create’s cutlery, tools and utensils, utilising the found objects as handles. The cutlery and tools are made from copper or sterling silver and are enamelled, textured and oxidised, therefore rendering them impractical for everyday use but giving them a new role as a piece of decorative art that will, hopefully, prompt an emotional response.
