Gill has developed her own unique style, working with fine gold and silver wire using a technique that allows her to express herself much in the same way as she would if painting. Through a love of experimentation and process Gill spontaneously creates her pieces while simultaneously retaining an elementary control of technique. Gill loves to work directly with the metal, to discover and learn new things about the material. Surface changes in tone and texture can be achieved by using differing densities of wire.
Mixing her own gold alloys gives Gill freedom to experiment with an array of shades not directly accessible to buy as raw material. These alloys fused to a base layer of fine silver wire, often with oxidisation, creates a satisfying colour palette.
Gill’s creative drive is propelled by interactions between the material properties and memories of visual inspiration such as walking in the woods and wild coastal landscapes of her home in Northumberland.
