Using a mixture of traditional and contemporary techniques, Suzanne's work consists of deconstructing, reconstructing and folding. She takes the starting point of a 3D product or form, and takes it back to its 2D roots to use these components as the foundation of her design. Using Adobe Illustrator and paper maquettes, she explores possibilities to create a new original design, often with no visual link to its origins. Suzanne adds a nod to the inspiration of the piece by using features of the original object as subtle design features in the finished piece.
Suzanne's designs have a minimalist feel with clean lines, and no additions for the sake of adornment. Her objects always start life as a flat sheet of metal and she relishes the experimentation of translating a 2D shape into a 3D resolved design. The mind designs, the hands construct and the metal dictates - the final outcome is a unity of the three.
One of Suzanne's designs, a silver golf ball marker, was shortlisted for the Make Your Mark Awards held by the London Assay office.
