My objective is to intrigue the user and to initiate a moment of
contemplation. Whenever possible I want my work to have a ‘duality’, a breadth of meaning and purpose.
I am fascinated by the way light can be reflected, shaped or form patterns within objects. Inherently bouncing light is deceptive. This interest in light has inspired me to experiment with traditional and unusual materials. I have worked with discarded reflective fish skins. I was struck by what a beautiful material it is, which is normally considered as putrid waste. Working with natural materials one has to learn how to preserve and ‘stabilise’ them. In some of the objects I have created, fish skin not only form beautiful reflective surfaces but also creates textured shadows.
Ultimately my ambition is to produce work that draws in the passer by and causes interaction. The challenge for me is to work with sustainable materials and evolve a style of products, which are affordable and timelessly elegant.
