Karen Elizabeth Donovan

Karen chooses to employ plant forms in her work because she believes that plants define the character of a place. Scotland has an incredible history; there are so many stories here, so many lives lived here. There is a tangible history of folklore, jewellery and plants.

She has chosen to look closely at Scottish heather; like titanium it is lightweight, strong, durable, and springy. Titanium presents wonderful challenges to overcome and work around, and gives strength to delicate wirework and piercing. Colour and pattern are integral to her work and are developed through close study of plants and created by the attributes of titanium.
