A fascination for illusion, function and geometric forms enables Katie Snow to create little ‘Pockets of Intrigue’ enticing the viewer to take a closer look. These small, wearable containers conceal treasures of the owner’s desire. She takes photographs of buildings and skylines which are used to manipulate shapes in computer design software, enabling me to extract sections for further development.
Each piece is individually created from silver, carefully constructed into oblique 3D forms. Tiny parts of detail are pierced out of the sheets creating ‘little windows’, enabling the viewer to catch a glimpse inside or straight through the container.
The functional wearables are sleek and geometric, suitable for the male and female wearer. Complementing these is a range of smaller commercial pieces keeping the same aesthetic to form an expanding elegant collection.
What could be concealed in your pocket? A love note, money, medication….? A secret only the wearer will know…
You can shop their collections and meet them alongside 70 other independent designers and makers at our next event at Shoreditch town hall.
