MA work

In present day life, durable materials are often used for the production of goods that are typically replaced or thrown away quickly. In my work I like to reverse the line of thought by using everyday, basic materials to create products that appear valuable. I thereby seek a tension between the product's appearance and the materials from which it is made.
