Izzy is an avid up-cycler and aims to make all of her work as focussed on recycled and sustainable materials as possible.
'One of the reasons I work with Scottish stones is that I know their provenance, that they haven't been collected using destructive methods and used exploited workers to finish them. It fits then that I use recycled materials to showcase them when possible. The copper I use has been harvested from plumbing discards, so old pipes and fittings that are no longer usable for their intended purpose. I clean these with wire wool and jewellery pickle to bring back the shine before using in my electroforming system.'
