Caroline Brogden is a jeweller working in precious metals; her work combines a number of elements with an emphasis on natural from.
Using traditional silversmithing skills her main body of work looks at ways to mimic natural shapes and forms found in nature, to create small pieces of wearable art and sculpture. Her work involves a number of fold-form techniques first discovered by Charles Lewton-Brain which have them been developed further by the use of anticlastic raising and forging.
Her inspiration comes from her love of being outdoors. She is fascinated by nature and in particular the patterns and textures created by natural forces. In order to mimic these shapes, she manipulates metal by combing a number of techniques including fold-forming, forging and raising.
