’Roderick Vere’ is the name for freelance artist, photographer and designer-maker Roderick Barker-Benfield. From jewellery making and sculpture to photographic portraiture, Roderick combines his eye for details with his passion for creativity to capture and create things you wouldn’t normally see.
Roderick’s jewellery focuses on the things we take for granted in our everyday lives and he regularly uses the ‘lost wax’ casting process to capture the intricate detail found in ordinary, but often overlooked objects. His jewellery can be found in several high end and boutique stockists around the UK, whilst his photographic work is regularly published in national newspapers and magazines.
Roderick lives and works in the delightful West Country town of Frome.
