About Desk of Plenty

Desk of Plenty

I'm an artist and maker from Milton Keynes, currently living near Reading.

I've maintained an artistic practice for ten years, experimenting with a multitude of materials and media.

The creation and reverence of objects has always been a large part of my practice, particularly things that are symbolic, historic, magical and deeply personal.

I'm a self-taught metalsmith and have learned lots of things the hard way; I remember spending weeks trying to get solder to melt in my freezing studio with a tiny hand torch, many years ago. I love how elemental and alchemical it feels to work with metal and minerals, and I prefer to approach jewellery with an ancient mind - if it's too fussy, too polished and industrial it's not for me. I like to see the ghost of a hammer or a fingerprint on the things I make and the things I like to buy.

My curiosity and admiration for natural materials continues in my wider work and life with gardening, foraging, natural pigments and walking.

Outside of all this serious stuff, I'm a video game nerd.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you find something you like!

    A beautiful piece that reminds me of a tiny silver hagstone. Delightfully packaged and quick delivery!
