About Kathryn Hinton
Using traditional techniques with digital technology Kathryn creates silversmithing and jewellery that explores emerging surfaces and faceted forms. Inspired by geometry Kathryn uses computer aided design to representing hammer strikes and marks made in metal. The use of digital technology to design and as a method of making, has shaped the style of her work.
Meet Kathryn Hinton
The jewellery and silverware is designed using Computer aided design to explore surface and pattern in a digital environment. It is realised through the use of 3D printing and lost wax casting in silver and gold. Traditional hand skills including stone setting are used as a way of introducing colour and as another element of design to the pieces. The faceted cuts of the gemstones compliment the geometric surface of the jewellery.
The silversmithing pieces are made through a combination of hand processes with computer numerically controlled (CNC) milling to create moulds for press forming silver.
