Beca Beeby is a designer/maker working in recycled silver and porcelain. She produces wearable sculpture and vessels; truly unique itrms inspired by morphogenetic forms found in nature – honeycomb, insect wings, plant cell structure, bubbles, barnacles, rock formations and more.
Beca’s love of nature means she is committed to producing her work in a sustainable, ethical way. In her solar-powered workshop in the Wye valley, only natural and non toxic treatments are used (such as citric acid for cleaning). Beca’s permaculture garden and nearby woodland provide much of the inspiration and starting points for her work, as do beekeeping, coastal wildlife & folklore. Connections to natural sciences & horticulture, a passion for social and environmental justice, and a strong aesthetic combine to make Beca’s work appeals to many.
Her background as a blacksmith and cast iron sculptor have influenced the contrasting finishes Beca uses on her jewellery, finishes which enhance the textures and maker marks, and which continue to develop and polish as they are worn.
