This body of work is a quiet exploration of ancient hand-building techniques to create contemporary functional forms. It is a contemplation of newness meeting tradition. As a maker, the intention of the collection is to observe natural imperfection and to elevate the work with gentle tones, to invoke a sense of stillness and simplistic beauty into objects used in everyday life.
I am inspired by everyday objects, a form catches my eye and I start to imagine and question how I can recreate that shape, if my nuances can be applied to it, and can and would the form be elevated by my ideas for it? Then the most exciting part of the process, for me, is exploring, making and bringing to life those thoughts and imaginings.
I love that my work plays a part of someone’s journey, that to me is incredibly exciting.
