Traces // Solace
The unique and extreme aspects of the Scottish climate leave material traces alongside human impacts on the landscape of the country, producing geological markers: scree, schist, fissures, and fractures as ‘rock defiant against frost and the old grinding of ice ‘(Nan Shepherd, 1934) performs its temporal permanence. These jewellery pieces explore tangible remains, their surface qualities as important signifiers or touchstones of memories. Timeless forms and rock hammered surfaces pair together to emulate nostalgic associations in the everyday.
