Karan's current work is influenced by observing the colours and forms from the fallen apples and windswept leaves that carpet the local orchards each year across North Wales and North Shropshire .
Taking inspiration from the natural colours and process of decay, Karan created a series of copper vessels that evoke the feeling of perpetual autumn.
Capturing the moment before decaying leaves fully return to the earth, enriching the soil to enable new life, Karan has utilised traditional metalsmithing techniques and natural patinations within her collection of sculptural vessels.
More than 20 years ago, Canadian goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain invented a radical way to develop forms in metal sheet. In the ensuing decades, he has led hundreds of metalsmiths to explore and expand on his pioneering work.
