My work has been driven by the desire to bridge the boundaries between craft, art and object design. I investigate the possibilities of structure as it pertains to functional and aesthetically based objects, exploring furniture and home ware design and construction. Underlying my creative practice is the development of new forms through sculptural experimentation with a focus on the manufactured object for commercial use. Both new and traditional methods are explored, alongside the use of materials and objects normally found outside of traditional craft and design arenas. I present unexpected uses of the handmade alongside their potential for commercial application.
