Mark graduated from 'Sheffield City Polytechnic' in 1980 with a degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery and an additional award for craftsmanship and design from the 'Guardians of the Standard of Wrought Plate' in Sheffield. His work is all designed and hand made by him in his studio in Sheffield. His jewellery is designed to appeal to both men and women but with particular focus on jewellery for men. The jewellery is made using a combination of media, chiefly silver, gold, ceramics and mild steel, and he includes 18ct gold, diamonds and vitreous enamels to create detail and pattern.
As for his inspiration Mark says ' My work is inspired by two main strands of influence, which are, abstract symbols such as road markings, coupled with my interest in the reactions of 3D media to applied processes. I utilise these material reactions in combination with abstract symbols and pattern to create jewellery and other forms of design work which are sophisticated, refined and well made.'
