About this image:

Created in 1987, this piece, entitled Patina Pendant, juxtaposes a verdigris patina (literally "green of Greece") with Space Age anodised Niobium to give a sense of the historical continuum that contemporary metalsmiths travel when making their work.

"Time seems to collapse when I am working with materials, tools and processes that have remained essentially unchanged from when the metalsmiths of Antiquity employed them."
