Sorrel Van Allen

Sorrel Van Allen is a contemporary jewellery and object designer-maker from the west coast of Canada with a background in red seal welding and artistic blacksmithing. She received her BFA, major in jewellery design and metalsmithing, from the NSCAD University and continued her education during a year-long postgraduate residential silversmithing program at Bishopsland Educational Trust, Oxfordshire, UK.

Fascinated with abstracting and replicating organic patterns and textures, Sorrel uses botany as inspiration for her geometric jewellery and object designs. Each piece is carefully hand pierced into thin sheet metal and then bent and overlapped, in a similar method to origami, to create unique hollow forms. Patina and surface decoration, in the form of bright pigments, Keum-Boo (attached gold) or subtle oxidizations accentuate the simple elegance found in these repetitive forms.
