Gill Bridgestock works with abstract conceptual forms that are hugely influenced by the sea and the natural world. She interprets the rough and smooth textures of rock pools, riverbeds and the movement of water which is of constant fascination to her.
Gill's sculptural pieces represent a suggestion of a captured movement, a flowing form stretching or curling. She works in two ways, with pewter in its molten state that is worked quickly then it is further worked extensively once cool to achieve its final appearance.
Her more sculptural pieces are made using pewter sheet, silver or copper to capture movement of the piece which is achieved using traditional silversmithing tools and techniques including the relatively new technique known as fold-forming.
