A key factor in Jack's unique style lies in his choice of materials; in conjunction with silver, semi- precious stones and some 'ready mades', Jack uses found objects. Most of these are sourced on his travels, wether it be fom the bustling streets of Paris, or, in the case of his earlier work, the secluded Sanna Bay. His unusual combinations, evident in 'Dunure' (left), which incorprates quartz, mocha stone, a pebble, and a gold plated sycamore, work together like individual words in a sentence or miniature moments in time, piecing together to form a whole - each of them playing a part in cementing the memory.
'Dunure'. Silver, rutilated quartz, mocha stone, pebble and gold plated sycamore.
