ABOUT


My work is an ongoing investigation into relationships, connections, balance and line. Previous work led to a conclusion that a circle acts as a visual representation of a complete, this now informs much of my ongoing work. 

I enjoy working from the initial design process right through until the finished item and find that every piece informs the next. Often a piece will start as a 2D line drawing and is them developed through model making and experimentation into a final design. I enjoy working with my hands as well as process of machining silver. The combination of using precious metal and heavy duty engineering equipment is intriguing and allows me to produce work that its often angular and crisp yet still retains a delicate quality.
