Louise Ellis

The first pair of earrings were miniature mobiles. They were heavy, pretty ugly and did not move well. I grew up thinking Alexander Calder was a god. Metal as a material and the work of Calder were my early influences. The work moved and was cold joined. My work took another direction as my interests in new techniques and/or materials developed. Gems became a part of my work as a need to explore the dimension of a secondary material. The antique button work is a result of my interest in the buttons and their history. The braided horsehair work is a result of my interest in the art of braided horsehair.
