We’ve asked specific makers to show us imagery that is special to them and influences their work.
Beginning with jeweller, Shivani Patel.
Shivani showed us several photos taken in India, Grenada and Madrid.
‘I never directly use specific images to inspire a particular piece. I suppose the images all feed into a subconscious part of my mind. I play and construct card models in the studio- layering and building different forms until I like what I see. This idea is then refined and edited until I end up with a design or starting point for a series of pieces.’
