DECOUVERTE : Karen Elizabeth Donovan – titanium from the Highlands

Karen Elizabeth Donovan, Edinburgh College of Art, MA Distinction (june 2014), masterfully moves that hardest of metals titanium to create exquisite filigree-like necklaces bracelets and Highland Clan brooches gently tinted in blues, greens and golds. Scotland’s rich social history, its flora, and the materiality of titanium are her inspiration: “Plants define the character of a Nation or place. In Vermont, where I was born, we define ourselves by the Maple Tree. In Scotland we are often defined by the Thistle…..Titanium has a certain feel to it; a noise it makes when I brush my hand across it, and a smell it creates when I pierce, file and sand it. It is lightweight, strong, durable, and springy. It presents challenges to overcome and work around. It is sensual and it is home.

With the concept of my Highland Clan Badges being used to identify the clan a person come from based on the plant they are wearing, these invite the wearer to pick their on sprig of Heather, Myrtle or Juniper!
