Lynne Speake is a multi disciplinary artist living and working in Cornwall. She works across sculpture, ceramics, photography, written word, installation and her work is always organically driven by her selected materials. Originally a painter, Lynne has a passion for colour, texture and pattern. She is fascinated and inspired on a daily basis by the peeling paint and the rusting metal that she finds all around her and especially when out walking her dogs.
In terms of Art Jewellery, Lynne creates predominantly large wearable sculptures, assemblages of found and gifted treasures sourced from Cornish boatyards, beaches and woodlands. ‘Through the things that I make with the things that I find I aim to gently invite people to think about the environmental impact of what they throw away … hidden works of art just waiting to be discovered, a hidden beauty within these often unnoticed treasures. Things discarded by man and shaped by mother nature’s elements’.
