‘Wave and Shore’ – A recent commission created by recycling a customer’s old gold. Erica made the background ring and tiny individual ‘pebbles’ from yellow gold, the wave from white gold and inlaid it with Cornish Tin.
The Wave and Shore ring
Erica’s study of waves began during her artist residency at the Levant Mine on the Cornish coast. As she was being constantly pelted with rain and sprayed by the sea, drawing and painting the waves was out of the question as the paper turned to mush in her hands, so she took to ‘drawing’ the waves with wire instead
Wire – the waterproof alternative
In August Erica headed back down to the Cornish coast to demonstrate her work in Cornish Tin at the Levant Mine. Full details are on the events page of ericasharpe.co.uk
