About

I create elegant metal wall pieces for domestic, corporate and public spaces.

I fell in love with etching, and the magic of capturing images on the surface of metal, eighteen years ago whilst studying metalworking. Since then I've used etching, alongside an ever growing palette of metal colouring and finishing techniques, to find new ways to work with images in a variety of metals, including copper, brass, zinc and gilding metal.

My influences include both the built environment and the natural landscape. I use drawing, printmaking and photography as a starting point to investigate particular themes, or subjects. To see photographs of my making process, click here to visit the MAKING page.

TESTIMONIALS

The work Rebecca produced for a superyacht project recently was really magnificent. It was a fairly tight schedule, but she delivered all 24 pieces on time and our clients were absolutely thrilled with the results.   Delightful as well as professional, we really enjoy working with Rebecca and look forward to commissioning her in the future.

Thank you!   It’s always a pleasure selling your work – a) it absolutely does what it says on the tin and b) you are incredibly well organised. Very few people produce work like yours and nobody matches the quality of your work. Beautiful craftsmanship and lovely materials. You are fast, efficient and responsive

Forming a circle from an arc of zinc and an arc of copper, joined axially. The surfaces of these two metals are etched with the techniques of intaglio printing, whether in the graceful complexity of line or the burnished scoring as if with a paint brush. These perfect circle wall hangings are an extraordinary work, scratched, scraped and waiting, just waiting, for the changing effects of age, elegantly created for the long away and manifesting future.
