Sarah Parker-Eaton

"Sarah Parker-Eaton's work begins on paper as a series of sketches mainly done in the Natural History Museum library in London. These are re-drawn repeatedly until a particular design emerges. She then begins to work in silver and gold, hammering out the bulging shapes and allowing the piece to develop further. Some pieces have been pierced through with forged tendrils and others appear to be kept afloat with small domed silver air sacks. Most of Sarah’s work is given a sheeny satin finish or a darker oxidized look and details such as tiny gold bobbles are highlighted with a polish."
