About Caitlin Murphy

Caitlin Murphy’s work is centred around high levels of accuracy and precision, folding and working with metal as if it is paper. Caitlin’s work begin during the pandemic and over time has transitioned from paper to precious. Caitlin challenges the boundaries of silversmithing and jewellery, making work that has a place on the wall as well as the table in an artistic and sculptural style. Woven precious and non precious metals of 0.1mm are attached to steel and silver frames, coming to life as 3 dimensional objects with optical illusion patterns. Most recently, Caitlin has been working with Niobium alongside silver. Using the technique of anodising she can permanently change the colour of this material using electricity and voltage. Caitlin is experimenting with colour and how this evokes emotion through her work. Caitlin enjoys migrating between silversmithing object work and jewellery scale pieces. Her jewellery gives her a chance to make wearable sculptures that adorn the body as works of art.
