Emphasising the distinctive aspects of plastic through a unique innovative process. 

It is no exaggeration that we live in a plastic world. We are surrounded by the material and have become too familiar with it. An over abundance of plastic makes it easy to identify its negative aspects, especially in terms of mass production. However, there are many benefits to using plastic, many of which are overlooked. My unique process, positioned between mass production and individualised craft, highlights these beneficial aspects.
