Anthea is a trained metalsmith, artist and a recycling guru. She combines these skills to create curious works of art and jewellery using recycled copper and brass with the addition of old clock and machine parts.
Anthea’s creations are unique due to the nature of the raw materials and with a multitude of interesting parts collected over time it’s both intriguing and exciting to see what comes next.
Anthea is inspired by the unwanted items that she has collected over many years, a firm believer that everything deserves a second life. She finds joy in creating new from old.
In recent years, a bird theme has developed and these are featured within her small sculptures.
Anthea chooses hand riveting over soldering (where possible) as a preferred method of joining parts. This ensures any natural patina, dinks, dents and character from a previous life, are all preserved in the finished piece.
Her jewellery combines semi-precious gemstones of various shapes and colours with recycled copper & brass.
