As a crafts artist Katy Gillam-Hull makes work fuelled by curiosity and informed by historical research and imagination alike. She predominantly works in precious metals but uses her knowledge of a variety of handcrafts to play with combinations of materials, such as silver, fleece and found glass. Whether she is working with a museum’s collection, or her own finds from mudlarking, she often considers the forgotten beauty or narrative of objects. In response she creates intricate pieces and art jewellery that intrigue the viewer, revealing this hidden past or preciousness and showing the found or historical item in a new and reverential light.
