Artist's StatementUnique designs based on British wildlife using recycled and sustainable materials as much as possible. Pieces made using recycled silver of hares, birds, foxes to name a few, all taken from original drawings by Sarah Cain.

Hanging decorations and framed pieces using found sea glass and fsc sustainable wood, all individually hand painted. Seasonal decorations for gifting.

I love all things whimsical and fun. I am drawn to the irrepressible joy and complexity of the natural world and feel restored whenever I am surrounded by nature. It gives me such peace and contentment, whether in a field, near woodland or by the sea. The more remote and rugged the landscape, the happier I am. I studied textiles and fashion at Liverpool before volunteering, later working and exhibiting in art galleries. I always enjoyed sculpture during my time at university and now working with metal clay I love the endless possibilities that the medium gives me. I work with sustainable materials as much as possible, using recycled silver, sea glass, Tagua nuts, bronze and copper. I find sea glass on my many trips to the Scottish and North Yorkshire coast; not far from my northern family. I derived a technique enabling me to produce hand carved moulds from which I create pendants of birds of prey, garden birds, foxes and hares to name a few. Each piece is taken from an original drawing it then goes through a process of being dried, sanded and fired with a blow torch or kiln fired, sanded, antiqued and finally polished. I sign each piece with a little running hare.
I show my work on an ongoing basis in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire Galleries. I have a shop on Folksy where I sell a small selection of my work and can work to commission. I use Instagram and Facebook to promote my work and give details of events that I attend throughout the year.
