Kathryn Williamson jewellery evolved from an interest in the textural quality of silver and the simple sculptural shapes of found objects.Other influences are inspired by Pittenweem beach pebble pottery finds. The seemingly unconnected nature of the pattern has led to the reignition of an interest in a ecletic array of pattern from japanese origami to 70s coffee sets.
These elements are currently being explored in silver through rolled textural surfaces , photoetching and
combining this with enamel, paper / resin and beach pebbles.,
I make individually crafted mosaics, using primarily recycled materials. These include decorative mirrors and pictures, kitchen or bathroom splashbacks and garden ornaments (such as bird baths, signs and stepping stones. Flowers feature in many of the mosaics that I make, which is inspired by my love of my garden.
