Forms and textures are organic and undulating, often very tactile. The inspiration for each piece is as individual as the piece itself; it can be the local landscape, plants from her garden or a stone picked up at a nearby beach that determines the shape of its own setting. Claire Roche, as Roche Designs, has been trading since 2003, slowly growing from the odd commission for friends into a small business.
All pieces are hand-crafted and are hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office. Most are completely unique but a few of the simpler pieces are limited editions of no more than 10 (see product descriptions).
