Sunset Geek

A project inspired by the textures, colours and patterns found in London’s sunsets and urban environment. Experimental pieces have been developed and applied to an accessories context. 

The resulting eyewear is fresh and surprising; displaying an organic pattern which is interrupted with metallic beads, translucent rubber and holographic glitter.

  • My work in all its forms celebrates my love of colour, a bold aesthetic and synthetic materials. Process is integral to my work, and I value the technical knowledge and skills required to produce work by hand. I am consistently inspired by pop culture, natural history and living in London.
