During Sues MA she developed a method of dying and embossing plastic. Some of the work is sandblasted on both sides to create a rich depth of texture and pattern, which is transformed by changing light source.
For the surface pattern Sue uses quite ordinary plants and weeds, hoping that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world. She is inspired both by the modernist approach to materials and enjoys cheap plastic items from places like Hong Kong. Setting out to create a marriage between the industrial and the organic. Sue wants to create a feeling of celebration between material and subject.
