Esther Smith

Esther takes inspiration from the beautiful natural surroundings of South Cornwall and the goings on of coast and country. Her upbringing on the north coast of Scotland also has a strong influence on the aesthetic qualities of her work which are unique, each piece telling its own story.

A trained jeweller, in recent years Esther has extended her skills to include the crafts of small scale sculpture and automata, telling visual stories from the world around her and from tales of long ago. The moving parts in her automata vividly bring the pieces to life.
