I am currently studying for a MA in Jewellery and Metal at the Royal College of Art, London.

With a very varied background - music, computing, print, now jewellery and metal - the common element in my work is a preoccupation with layers either stacking things up, peeling things back or wrapping things up.

Denne’s practice brings two different vocabularies together in his work – traditional silversmithing techniques with the twist of a contemporary outsider ascetics, a balance of analogue and digital thinking – while attempting to address head on the complication of money vs value when working in precious metals.

Improvising within the constraints of lockdown I have been focusing on the qualities of metal not normally associated with the metalsmith – hand building rather than with traditional tools, thickness/thinness of materials to create objects associated with the table.
