Caitlin is a Scottish jeweller who celebrates Ancient Heritage in her work, through exploring rhythmic markings in metal and reclaimed wood. Caitlin is fascinated by the communicative value of lines and how their ambiguity transcends and resonates with humanity. Caitlin’s practice energises traditional metalworking and woodworking techniques. Texture is created by hammering into metal with hand forged tools or lines are drawn into space against the body in wire. Wood is carved and dyed to celebrate the inherent rhythmic wood grain. Caitlin’s practice is driven by the unpredictability and irregularity of process; the shade of dyed wood or quality of line in metal takes on its own personality in a sequence.
Caitlin makes work between The Glasgow School of Art where she is as an Artist in Residence as well as in her studio in Argyll and Bute. After graduating with First Class Honours from The Glasgow School of Art in 2018, Caitlin facilitates Arts Workshops and also works for The National Trust for Scotland.
