Shadowed Earth is a joint father and daughter enterprise. Based in Newlyn, Nick works with wood and Jess creates jewellery.
Nick uses local sycamore to produce very particular vessels. He carves, turns and burnishes the wood, working with the shapes and marks that the tree has contributed, all finished off beautifully with beeswax. The other half of Shadowed Earth, Jess uses recycled silver to create earrings and rings. Her style is classical simplicity, which makes the most of the metal she is reworking.
Both Nick and Jess’ work create ‘style with sustainability’, an approach Wild West Works is keen to promote.
