Variants is about exploring the use of dynamic moulding techniques in order to achieve variation of form from object to object. My methods allow me to fabricate bespoke items at a high volume. I hope this project will challenge the long-standing limitations in design, by separating monetary economy and formal repetition.
The project also explores the relationship between function and form, when you have manufacturing techniques with real-time variability.

Design through Making Platform
My designer-maker background has taught me to develop my design skills by getting my hands dirty; in order to fully understand materials and manufacturing processes, before applying them to practice. My passion for creation and methodical disposition allows my, often complex, objects and ideas to become intelligible.
