MA work

My final project 'The Alchemist’s Dressing Table', is a collection of contemporary, analogue tools for the human scale, home production of cosmetics. My design celebrates beautiful ancient rituals and the transformative powers of alchemy. I believe that greater well-being can be achieved by simplifying and localising processes and using natural ingredients. My work is for the individual who desires more control over their own well-being, a stronger connection to their daily rituals and a more magical relationship with nature’s intricate mysteries.
