Cathy's work expresses her passion for the natural world, especially plants. The pieces are sometimes symbolic, sometimes figurative and others just evoke a sense of a walk or just being in a particular environment.
She uses a variety of techniques to transform precious metals to reflect botanical forms and scenes. These include chasing and repoussé, direct casting and saw piercing. This is then combined with a variety of surface treatments including enamelling. The materials I use are precious metals, vitreous enamels and some gemstones.
Cathy Newell Price is silf taught and has been making jewellery for many years. She started working in silver as a teenager and still uses the piecing saw that was given to her when she was 15. She then studied Botany for her undergraduate degree and the combination of these two interests underpins everything she does.
