Kate Michelle is a masters graduate from UCE Birmingham School of Jewellery where she researched line, texture and form with wire as a medium. A line of wire thread is created which when manipulated makes a personal, individual and uniquely patterned surface, inspiring irresistibly tactile collections. Investigations into the combination of wire diameter and needle size have lead to creating a durable hand knitted fabric that can be manipulated into stunning Jewellery and quirky 3D designs. The fabric created is unique in its strength while giving the illusion of fragility. The latest collection by Kate Michelle is a set of intricate sculptured birds. Each one has their own distinct character and is mounted on driftwood or stones sourced in the Dorset and Devon countryside and beaches.
