Jewellery designer/maker Glenis Boote produces strong sculptural pieces influenced both by her love of the West Sussex countryside that surrounds her home, and by the work and philosophy of William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement. “Many of my designs start from a direct observation of the flowers and plants in my garden. I then try to ensure that there is an honesty in the craft and construction that remains true to Arts & Craft principles.
Anti-clastic raising is a technique that features in much of her work, creating curving three dimensional organic shapes through hand forming.
Glenis’s work is on show at Mettle studios, Angmering where she has her studio, and at the Surrey Guild Craft Gallery in Milford. Glenis is a member of Surrey Guild of Craftsmen, and the William Morris Society.
