Combine metal, something we consider precious or valuable, with concrete, an inexpensive building material, and a door opens into an exploration of alternative materials in jewellery and art. It can also be a metaphor about what we really value. Briefly, that is what my original project was about. The web site was meant to be a record of that exploration.
Its origins were found in my concerns as a jeweller and a metalworker about the element of preciousness. In the past this concern has led me into paper and plastic jewellery. Next it led into concrete and portland cement.
The project started in March, 1998. The following web pages were archived in March, 2007, after the web site became much more than the original concept:
