Personal profile

Research and Innovation interests

I am an Associate Professor in the School of Jewellery. The duality of craftsmanship and technology is a constant thread in my research and brings a subject-specific perspective to the examination and interpretation of artefacts and their production. The combination of craft, technical and academic expertise has been particularly appropriate in the heritage sector, where the artefact is often the only primary source of information. Through knowledge exchange residencies I have has worked with Birmingham Museums Trust and the Museum of London (MoL) utilising craftsmanship expertise to deconstruct and recreate heritage artefacts. The residency with MoL formalised an existing relationship with the museum from which further research was commissioned. The outputs of the research made a significant contribution (eight exhibits) to ‘The Cheapside Hoard: London’s Lost Jewels’ exhibition (2013-14): the most successful exhibition in MoL’s history. As a practicing goldsmith, academic and researcher, this research was retuned in REF2014 and the methodological approach, dissemination, and exhibition of ‘The Cheapside Hoard’ significantly contributed to the impact case study ‘Craft Informed 3D printing and digital reconstruction of precious objects changing museum and heritage practice’. This methodology was recently applied to the eighteenth-century printing and punchcutting of John Baskerville, returned to REF2021.
