The robot figure jewellery and objects produced are informed by my childhood memory of super robot animations including Robot Taekwon V (1976), Mechander Robo (1977) and Astro Boy (1963). I was fascinated by the robots and their transformation. To complement the influence of the animations, I investigated an excavated Roman glass cup. This encouraged me to continue to explore related relics, patterns, symbols, and colours from ancient Korean, Bactrian, and Celtic cultures.
