I love the sound of hammer on metal when working and the movement of the metal under the hammer influences the final form. I try to work with the metal and the hammer marks are integral to my finished pieces. My designs are influenced both by natural forms and also I take inspiration from architecture, the simple clean lines of Mies van der Rohe and the more ebullient fluid forms of Gaudi. At present I am mainly working on handcrafted bangles which are influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Email: cbewhitley@gmail.com
