WELCOME TO STYLIST’S OWN
BY ELAINE GREEN
Designer & Maker
“As a designer maker trained in metalsmithing I have spent my working life creating anything from sculptural garden features to doorhandles, props for fashion shoots and bespoke homefurnishings for a diverse clientele. I have been lucky enough to experiment and play whilst gaining knowlege and experience along the way. I love to work with individuals creating bespoke sculptural pieces that serve a purpose and answer a brief, especially if the need is for something extraordinary and unique. I chose to name my business Stylist’s Own as, should you appreciate my aesthetic, I am available to work with you in bringing your ideas to life. I have a growing number of skilled collaborators working in other crafts and so hope that whether you are a design professional or styling your own home, we can provide you with a creative and professional new resource when sourcing bespoke works for your projects.”
“Whilst I work in a variety of metals and materials I have a special love for copper. The endlessly recyclable metal has so many magical properties and uses, not least of which is its beauty.
Copper’s colour and malability lends itself perfectly to my organic way of working and as I reference the natural world in all of my pieces I can achieve the textures and finishes I need whilst working copper with heat and hammer by hand.”
“The partnership of copper and vitreous enamel is an elegant and exciting one. The glass finish on copper is sleek and beautiful and can be layered in a kaleidoscopic array of colour. From subtle, metallic transparent washes to bursts of strong opaques. Introducing enamel colour to my practice has been like opening a glorious paintbox, the surfaces are beautiful and although delicate, surprisingly durable.”
