Nan Collymore primarily focuses on materiality and its relationship to the body. Touch and affect play an important role in how she approaches each of her pieces. Nan's aesthetic embraces an openness to nature and an appreciation of the irregularities of form. Her jewelry has unique, rough-hewed qualities that can be seen in the textures, stones, and silhouettes of each piece. The work, while balanced, refined, and artful, retains an organic feel with its distinctive sculptural shapes, and one can almost imagine them as small maquettes for larger-scale art pieces. In addition to jewelry, Nan also creates ethereal stitched and crocheted wall sculptures made from yarn and wire.
