Copper Catkin is the forum in which I share the fun things that pop into my head and demand to be given an outlet.

I came up with the ‘Copper Catkin’ name some time ago. The contradiction appealed to me – the fluffy catkin, made of shiny metal. I chose copper as a nod to my interest in all things Steampunk, and I have loved catkins since I was a wee kitling myself. The combination of soft plant and hard metal is also a quiet homage to NZ’s silver fern.

The logo is based on ‘C’ to the power of three – the third ‘C’ being my name – and the heart emoticon incorporates that superscript ‘3’ to represent the loving marriage of technology and creativity.

Under this banner, I have created drawings, paintings, jewellery, clothing designs, mugs, and fabrics – I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them!
