Natalie Salisbury

British born Natalie Salisbury works from her home workshop in Wellington. 
Creating wearable pieces of work to adorn and decorate the body has always been Natalie's focus. Keeping it simple, delicate and beautiful she translates her references and research into pieces of work that vary in both the processes used to design them but also the materials chosen to make them.
Her work is varied; her collections have grown and changed as she has through the years. Whilst many of her designs and processes began using fairly structured industry methods, the past 8 years of life, love, and experience in New Zealand have helped not only to develop new aesthetics in her work but to allow growth and encourage understanding of the medium with which she works.
Natalie's collections explore pattern, repetition and texture, and much of her work involves a strong focus on rich floral aesthetics. Currently Natalie is moving in a new direction - finding delight in rough textures and one-off pieces. Natalie loves nothing more than to sit at her bench and to become lost in the making of each piece.
