The longing of the Oracle

My inspiration for this collection comes from my graduation project, Lingering Longing, a performative installation that creates space for the longing/oracle/body to express its voice.

I craft all my pieces using the ancient technique of lost wax casting, a technique that has its roots in ancient Greece. The casting carries the element of purification and transformation. Each piece is handmade and sculpted from hand-picked branches, which are burned and transformed during the casting. The process itself preserves a memory of a landscape; inner and outer.

This collection can also be purchased at the FORGE gallery in Hatton Garden, London, UK.

If you're interested in designing your own jewel through an immersive experience in Nature with me, see Book a session instead.
