The specific combination of qualities within a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds of the same pitch and volume is its ‘timbre’. While Simon Cottrell‘s works are tangible and far less transient than any sound can ever be, this term which defines the inherent small differences within similarities seems more than apt to apply. The ongoing and slowly shifting use of certain preset parameters with only a singular material, monel, and an achromatic palette, has become his formal language. Working within this sameness has lead him to focus more closely on the possible variances within those systems of working, and heightens the sensitivity to relationships between tiny details within one piece or acrosspast works.

“I have no need to hurry or progress in leaps and bounds. Each piece is conceived primarily for an existence in collaborating with a wearer towards their communication of self. From a wearer’s perspective, prior relationships between other earlier works of mine are insignificant. As ever my work retains a decisive avoidance of direct allusions or clearly resolved representation. This is not so much by thorough pre-­‐planning, rather by only allowing coy suggestions of subjects to repeatedly rise in a responsive and intuitive process of making, and then continuing countering those subjects. The result usually evokes something between anything and nothing.”
