Project summary:

Materiality is a core element within my making process. Through my work, I take inspiration from the landscapes and textures I experience, both organic and handmade. Using these elements, I endeavour to create a sense of balance within the pieces I create. By Combining contrasting elements found within both organic and manmade forms and structures I can explore the relationship between the two opposing forces.

Through my experimentation and exploration into different methods of making and materials capturing textures and recreating forms isn’t the essential element of my process. For me, It is about focusing on repurposing scrap or waste materials. Gaining an understanding of the ways in which my tools interact with the materials. How the material reacts to manipulation, deconstruction, and reassembling. It is about intuitive making to not only produce pieces that are decorative or functional but encapsulate the process of how it is made.

An element start I wanted to work with. I've realised that it's not just about finding the sense of balance between nature and manmade. Decay and rebirth. Everything returns to nature eventually. For instance, you could have a tower block Concrete sleek constructed by man to be a permanent. But once you remove that human element it starts to decay, and it is reabsorbed by nature. Creating balance.

I aim to create pieces that bring together people. Through their functionality, but also to evoke a sense of escapism. As everything returns to its natural state. An understanding that nature will always be a part of the manmade world through the shapes and textures used.
