MA work

My work is developed through making. Each different process informs and influences the ideas that I investigate.

Material qualities that may be accidental marks or imperfections, are explored and exposed and turned into beautiful details with a mixture of complex pattern and pure simplicity.

Familiar forms afflicted with personal interventions sit alongside unique objects, in a playful juxtaposition of pattern, surface, function and material, exploring a relationship between production and the hand made.
