Caitlin is a Scottish jeweller who celebrates Ancient Heritage in her work, through exploring rhythmic markings in metal and reclaimed wood. Caitlin is fascinated by the communicative value of lines and how their ambiguity transcends and resonates with humanity. Caitlin’s practice energises traditional metalworking and woodworking techniques. Texture is created by hammering into metal with hand forged tools or lines are drawn into space against the body in wire. Wood is carved and dyed to celebrate the inherent rhythmic wood grain. Caitlin’s practice is driven by the unpredictability and irregularity of process; the shade of dyed wood or quality of line in metal takes on its own personality in a sequence. As well as her making practice, Caitlin has experience sharing techniques and facilitating creative workshops within the community.
