The ‘spur’ form is a recurrent theme within this collection - ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll’. Originating from a one-off pair of genuine boot spurs I hand-forged in sterling silver as a nod to true masculine decadence – a rebellious luxury. I pushed the sculptural qualities of the shape as far as I could. As with the rest of the collection it was born out of my exploration of masculinity in the context of the excesses of rock and roll. These decadent boot spurs then formed the identity of the spur-like shape you see here.
During the development of this collection I was not only immersing myself in the world of rock n’ roll but was also fascinated by the extremes of the human body – watching performances by contemporary dancers such as Michael Clark and his company, and the films of Kenneth Anger (Scorpio Rising in particular). I wanted the pieces I made to reflect the strength and power I saw in these performances.
Alongside this, I was also taking reference from the work of photographers who I believe capture perfectly the spirit and energy of youth culture – such as Bruce Weber, Larry Clarke and Hedi Slimane, amongst others.
The sculptural shape of the spur form is both curved and sharp. It has sensuality as well as power. I originally hand-carved the shape and the feeling of the lines and volume as they appeared were very important to me. I felt the shape as it came to life.
By hanging it on a very simple chain, all the focus is on the spur itself, and the sculptural qualities of the form.
