Copper Catkin, or a tale of three C’s
Copper Catkin is the forum in which I share the fun things that pop into my head and demand to be given an outlet.My passion is primarily for drawing – but I need art to be functional, so I justify my drawings by turning them into something tangible. I make earrings, pendants, bracelets, cufflinks, and other jewellery, sealing my artwork under glass. I also have my designs custom-printed onto fabrics, which I then turn into fun accessories.
I came up with the ‘Copper Catkin’ name some time ago. The contradiction appealed to me – the fluffy catkin, made of shiny metal. I chose copper as a nod to my interest in all things Steampunk, and I have loved catkins since I was a wee kitling myself. The combination of soft plant and hard metal is also a quiet homage to NZ’s silver fern.
The logo is based on ‘C’ to the power of three – the third ‘C’ being my name – and the heart emoticon incorporates that superscript ‘3’ to represent the loving marriage of technology and creativity.
Under this banner, I have created drawings, paintings, jewellery, clothing designs, mugs, and fabrics – I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them!
