UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE | 2016
Brooch | Oxidised Sterling Silver, Ebony, Stainless Steel
Underneath The Surface; 2017 explores how neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’ s or
Alzheimer’s develop quietly under the surface, only revealing themselves when notable
change occur. When each piece of ebony is fastened to the brooch, it appears unblemished
and complete. Unfasten one of the pieces and the cavity left is blemished and a hole
reminds you something is missing. The more pieces removed, the more prevalent the
damage, much like the progression of a neurodegenerative disease.
