Silver Pine Crafts by Leanne Orme

After studying art and design at college i went on to complete a degree in Three Dimentional Design at manchester metropolitain university, where i developed a love of objects, handmade items and traditional making processes.

My work is heavily inspired by nature weather it be the subject matter or natural materials i love to use. my university projects focused heavily on using found/foraged materials with metalwork, combining the disperate materials together in an attempt to capture the wildness and temperate nature of the landscapes i studied and collected materials in.

While at university my studdies and ideas where presented as small scale metalwork, jewelery and wearables. a medium that i still enjoy and work in however after leaving university my work has evolved to include more homeware specifically wall decorations and artwork which has allowed me more freedom with scale, materials and ideas.
