Seeking to blend aesthetics with functionality, Geoffrey Cameron Marshall’s work is inspired by his early interest in the visual arts and refining ideas around form and translating them into functional design pieces.
Drawing inspiration from natural forms and combining new technology with traditional techniques Marshall creates pieces that acknowledge the past whilst looking to the future. The resulting objects are hand-finished and assembled ensuring quality and artistic integrity.
A shark egg discovered during a family walk on one of Tasmania’s iconic beaches at Stanley triggered research into the sharks of Southern Australia. Geoffrey’s response to this seaside prize continues an exploration of natural forms to inspire aesthetically appealing everyday designs. Stripping back the form, the Swell Pendant mimics the structure of the Swell Shark (Cephaloscyllium laticeps) egg.
