Statement

Oppositions serve as a framework for my practice. Using casting methods, I replicate recognisable objects, creating signifiers to challenge the familiar. The value of the individual components becomes obsolete as they merge into peculiar fossilisations to create dualistic tension.

I grew up in Northern Ireland, but also created another home on the other side of the world in New Zealand. This is perhaps what helps to stimulate my interests in duality.

My work is informed by my surroundings. Objects suggestive of function and structure from the domestic interior and outdoor exterior intrigue me. I process and reconstruct this visual stimulus to create my own abstracted ambiguous pieces. This is the way in which I make sense of my environment and my own sense of place within it. I use jewellery as a means to communicate about how I perceive the world with the aim to connect with wearers who wish wear intriguing jewellery.


Lynsay trained as a metalsmith in Ireland before graduating from Unitec with a BDes (Hons) in jewellery in 2008.
