Hazel Thorn

Hazel constructs metal sheets whose patterns are created by fusing together precious and base metals. After forming these into sculptural vessels, she applies one chemical patination to the whole object. This affects the mixed metals in different ways, producing contrasting colours that highlight the structure of the sheet.

From growing up in a remote part of the Highlands, Hazel has always loved wild places and natural objects. Instead of using found materials directly in her work, she explore intuitively with metal, finding that her admiration for the complexity and beauty of such forms and places surfaces indirectly.
