2013 Holloware prize winner.
“ As a silversmith, novelist, musician and flutemaker,
I have been working for many years to create
an art form that incorporates the three disciplines of music, sculpture and storytelling. I started my quest 38 years ago when
I first apprenticed as a flutemaker and imagined a flute made of silver vines, leaves and fruit. I honed my flutemaking crafts for
13 years before I ventured into creating the organic "art nouveau" flute. At the same time I became a
writer, developing as a storyteller.
Lastly in the past 18 years, while making flutes and writing novels, I learned chasing and repoussé
to complete the circle so
I could tell my stories in silver and gold.
A unique work of art.
An heirloom treasure to last generations.
This is no ordinary flute.
This is a legacy.
I can create a work of art on your flute.
Top your flute with a crown made just for you.
Immortalize an animal friend in precious metal.
Pendants & pins for every day.
