Inspired by the landscape and beaches of the far west of Cornwall, where Jen lives and works, each piece features a series of designs which tell their own story of this unique and special piece of coast line. Jen explains:
“‘Porthchapel’ is inspired by the giant rocks along the shoreline which the sea swirls around as the tide rolls in over its sand.
“‘Carbis Bay’ is inspired by the beautiful rock formations on the cliff face which form the backdrop of this glorious beach, with its secret caves carved out by the sea. And also the stunning colours of the sand and the turquoise sea in St Ives bay.
“‘Way to Blue’ is inspired by the title of a favourite Nick Drake album. It represents the pathway and boulders leading to the sea at The Battery Rocks in Penzance. This place that has always been favoured by seasoned swimmers, including my mum!
“‘Pedn Vounder’ - For me, this is the most special place, a secret beach revealed at low tide when you can walk right across Porthcurno bay towards the Logan Rock. Although you could be stunned by the dramatic beauty of the cliffs, it is the long stretch of sand and the patterns, ripples and glistening pools left by the receding tide that have captured my imagination and inspired this piece.
“Although these designs may be repeated, the shapes, textures and colours of the components that collectively make each piece are unique as they take on their own form as they pass through the various creative processes. Each tells its own story, making each piece unique and special to the person who wears it.”
