BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design

Amy Rhian Hughes

My practice is based on the interaction between forms and patterns, working within the field of contemporary jewellery. My work tends to be highly intricate and detailed, with precision and symmetry being central to my aesthetic. My inspiration for this range of work came from the drawings of the 19th century naturalist and artist Ernst Haeckel, and the micro-organisms from his drawings, called radiolarians. I used 3D modelling, rapid-prototyping and casting to recreate these kinds of forms as jewellery.
