Lee Simmons

MA work

My work is concerned with the relationship of function within an object’s visual language. I strive to create work that creates a contemplation element of interaction. My background training is in silversmithing, which allows me to draw on a wide-skilled set of processes while acquiring material knowledge that has lately allowed me to progress in a change of scale. The pivotal point of my work is between space, scale and material; allowing oneself to consider and develop out into the realms of exterior and interior space within the surroundings of my work.
