Rosie Wesley is a graduate from the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham with a BA (Hons) in Metalwork. She is currently working from her studio at The Sorting Office in Eastleigh, Hampshire.

With a focus on texture and form, Rosie’s sculptural works and jewellery are individual, site-responsive pieces to locations in the New Forest, where she grew up.

Using burn-out casting techniques to produce replica textures of bark or other organic materials, each piece is completely unique and crafted from an original piece of the forest. Many of her pieces also feature components based on the landscape’s negative spaces or markings and drawings inspired by her sketches of the landscape.

Rosie is fascinated by the concept of taking something from our natural environment and transforming it or assembling it into something else; giving it a new life away from it’s original environment. Her work allows you to appreciate natural spaces everyday, and preserve a part of them forever.
