The Flora style is characterised by the presence of delicate floral motifs, anchored by formidable structures and imbued with a sense of strength and menace. As a lifelong collector of natural objects, barbed and blossoming forms incite equal intrigue for Leane; their beauty being reliant on nature’s balance of dark and light.
For Leane, ever curious about the animal kingdom, Fauna is characterized by the articulated movement of limbs as links; shaped, sculpted & sharp. The precious metal piece becomes a breathing work of art, as it moves sinuously on the wearer.
The first flush of life is conveyed through opulent materials and exquisite craftsmanship. Death, too, leaves a lasting and precious trace, a blueprint for its next incarnation.
It is in these poetic reminiscences of lost beauty where Leane’s work takes its most romantic form. Distilling nature’s essence into a whisper, charged with a knowledge that it will rise once again.
