Heather Rathbun's Page

I create wearable objects that are inspired by and utilize the interactive qualities jewellery evokes. My designs often have separate functions, aside from being wearable, with the incorporation of kinetic and / or manipulative elements. My background in photography also plays a strong influence in my designs. Within some works, I have integrated three-dimensional photography in both stereoscopic and anaglyphic form using both found imagery and my own.
