I am a determined Designer Maker that believes in creating sustainable hand crafted objects of excellence. My approach to design is very experimental and material driven, I often work backwards; starting with a material and its properties and then determining how it can be applied to a product. The outcome often differs from the initial goal as the material dictates the direction of the project. I am interested in using waste materials that are perceived as having no value. I like the narrative that these materials tell, when waste from a specific site can be re-processed and made into something for that local area. Creating well crafted functional objects from waste re-examines their value and highlights their wider potential.
