Lapidaruim necklace from the Rock Candy Slice collection. Originally made for Tate shops in since 2019.
About the collection
Inspired by rock formations in geology and childhood visits to Blackpool and my local sweet factory to watch the demos of boiled sweets being manufactured, the "Rock candy slice" collection incorporates similar processes found in sugar work. The pieces start out large and are then compressed and stretched to form long sticks of rock (or canes) that contain patterns which are then sliced. Each slice is unique as the patterns shift slightly throughout. The pressure applied when forming the canes mimics the shifts and changes found in slow-moving geological happenings; when elements combine and compress over millions of years to form crystals and rocks filled with colour and pattern.
