Degree Show set up 2018

Rachel is a recent graduate of The Glasgow School of Art specialising in Silversmithing and Jewellery. As a maker she combines her love of drawing and metalwork to create sketch-like objects inspired by the architectural quirks of her hometown Glasgow; paying particular homage to the chimneys which sleep above the city.

Rachel combines different metals together - precious and non-precious and explores oxidisation and heat patination in her work. Solder joins are also intentionally exposed and marks made in the making process are embraced.
