Samuel Weller

MA work

I am passionate about the process by which products come into being. From an initial scribble through to a real-world production piece, I find myself located between these two points of a product’s life cycle.


I enjoy the romance of objects, and strive to search for the core essence of why certain objects, movements or particular aesthetics are more captivating than others.


Within the objects I develop, I aim to explore both the boundaries of existing manufacturing processes and the intrigue of human interaction, as well as the form which technology takes on in the future. These are distinct themes throughout my work.
