Lauren Fox makes things to inspire curiosity. There is a language in metal that allows her to create fuid and gentle shapes from tough and sometimes unforgiving material – this contrast is always a motivation, and a tension that is where she starts from. She is inspired by her love of the underwater world, and driven by a sense of adventure and possibility. Her work is sometimes realistic, sometimes fantastical, but always playful – and for Fox there is a joy in creating jellyfish that looks back at you, or rockets that can never fly, but have individual personalities.
