Crisp, Clean Washing
These two pairs of undies are made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. On the spotty pair, the surface has been blackened with a natural sulphur oxide, giving it a darker finish, while the other pair has a brushed matt finish. Both pendants were made with a 55cm long sterling silver chain.
This piece was originally made for a group exhibition at the Bavarian Crafts Council in Munich. The was ‘Textiles’ and many makers from different fields were invited to created something that reflected this theme. I decided to make two sets of silver underpants. I think a clothesline with socks and T-shirts might be in the making.
It’s always great to make work for an exhibition or a special client because it gives me a chance to make something totally different and experiment with ideas i might not have thought of had I not had this opportunity.
Some other examples of custom made unique pieces are the piece I made for Marie who wanted to remember her Grandfather with a special pendant Orion of the Night and a set of cuff links I made for Simon but commissioned by his wife Caroline as a gift for his 40th birthday A Union of Crosses.
