Major project:

Crafting the Paradisial Erotic

This work is intended as a gift for someone I admire.  A romantic gesture envisioned as an ideal that can be given, a paradise of total consideration and control in the form of a contained room-space. A room and an atmosphere made with the intention to provide a perfection.

'Paradise is a strange land, but a familiar presence. Few have been there, but many people have an idea of what it is like. As a garden at one end of time and a city at the other, paradise is in one sense remote from worldly concerns.'

- William McClung, The Architecture of Paradise

Taking influence from highly detailed and decorative architectural structures this collection utilises intricate and repetitive techniques of construction to create a gift of labour, dedication and love.  

Info

  • Maker of intricately handcrafted knitwear. An obsessive inclination and love of repetitive detailing led me to create laborious and decorative garments, with the intention that they may be treated as a gift.

    The work must show a ‘surrendering of what is to ourselves desirable’.
