MA work

Design is my outlet to physically narrate my perceptions of the world. My persistence in the pursuit of biomorphic forms has led me to devise new tools and methodologies which have allowed me to explore natural forms and structures in my work. I am interested in imperfection as a human trait and how it can actually increase rather than decrease the value of a product. I like to produce a level of individuality and attention to detail suited to limited editions, but I also look at ways I can capture the unique nature of a ‘one-off’ object and apply it to a larger production run.
