Scarlett recently graduated form the Glasgow School of Art specialising in jewellery design and silversmithing.
Her work is primarily based around research in to visual aspects of scientific chaos. This stemmed from a fascination with the eerie beauty and mystery of fractal geometry, which led her to experiment and look into ways of formulating her own visual chaos. She did this by experimenting with visual feedback loops.
Feedback loops are iteration that takes place when a video camera is pointed at its own monitor. When the camera is nudged and manipulated the screen quickly overloads in to a form of chaos revealing itself as beautiful complex infinite structures of undulating, ever-changing pattern and form.
Photography and experimental film work play a key role in the aesthetics of her pieces. Spontaneous color, steady movement and growth of pattern and form are the main factors considered during the design process.
She uses Industrial enamel to achieve the colour in her work, enameling on to deeply etched metal then rubbing it all the way back so the detail in the metal remains most important in the piece. She describes her work as traditional jewellery styles and details juxtaposed with expressive enameled spontaneous sections.
