Katy Taylor - Cider Tree Copper Works
'I make nature themed art utilising a wide range of traditional metalsmithing techniques. Predominantly working in copper, I like to combine this with other materials to create one-off framed, 2D and 3D sculptural art pieces.
From an early age, I’ve always been fascinated by the natural world and the peace and tranquillity it provides. Without these things the ‘white noise’ of everyday life would drown out everything else. Its only when you completely immerse yourself in the natural landscape that you can truly appreciate the intricacies and complexities of nature.
My ideas develop from the topography of the rural and ancient landscape in all its diversity. The flora & fauna, colours, textures, and wildlife that fill it are a constant source of inspiration.'
