Victoriasewart.com Petals

Donna graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2002 and now exhibits here in Britain, America and Japan. By working in soft metals such as silver and 18ct gold Donna is able to explore techniques of fusion in a new and exciting way. She arranges petal like shapes into regular and irregular patterns, and fuses them together. The overlaps of the petals create patterns in themselves, adding to the overall design of the piece. Different textures, patterns and imprints can be seen in each element. Movement is also a particular characteristic of Donna’s work, with floral rings and brooches having a layer of kinetic elements.
