Using our artistic knowledge as a base combined with personal experimentation, natural curiosity, a love of travel and keen environmental observation, we have a passion to take the essential nature of precious stones and natural objects like bark and insects to create works that best interpret the natural qualities to be found in each stone.
“As we go through a journey, we constantly learn. Everything is new and fill us with enthusiasm; nothing feels as if we have seen it before. Each day refreshes anew, so all we can do is be ready to learn.”
Experience, skilled tool use and a true understanding of the nature of the materials we work with are very important. Since our works derive purely from the imagination, the moment inspiration comes to us we must immediately try to follow the vision of that moment and start to work. For example, when we alloy 100 percent silver with brass we proceed slowly step by step to the point where the balance seems perfect, where the setting perfectly complements the stone in the finished work.
