Design has always been a passion of mine. At school I loved design and had fun working with wood and metal. Working with more industrial processes at university, coupled with time spent in industry, has given me a sound understanding of manufacturing, prototyping and production. It is this understanding that has allowed me to develop a more conceptual approach to my craft. Now I’m interested in pattern and perception and all my work has meaning and a purpose. I investigate spaces and deliver unique solutions that develop calm, understanding and unity.
I have worked with a wide range of materials, though my current focus is on aluminium, a material I love for its robustness and outstanding aesthetic qualities. It is a material that can truly stand the test of time, with the significant benefit that it does not degrade when recycled, meaning its lifespan is unlimited. My approach is to explore the function and properties of whatever material I am using through computer-aided modelling, testing and prototyping. As a designer it is my view that a more tactile understanding of a material is needed before you and truly understand it.
I am currently taking commissions. Please contact me to discuss ideas or projects.
