I have spent several years travelling and taking photos of doors and their hardware. I was fascinated by the variety I found: of colour, texture, form and use. I thought about the stories and secrets which might be behind each door, and where it would lead me should I venture through.

Which led me to consider the how – and of course I needed the key. So I collected some keys and during the year I cast and manipulated one of them. I cast the key in sterling silver and in resin and set them against metal which was pressed with the same image.

I aim to develop the idea for an exhibition.
