My work centres around the meditative nature of making and the simple, peaceful joy that creating things brings me. I try to avoid ‘goal based’ or ‘end product’ thinking in my practice and instead focus on a process based way of working. I have a specific interest in materiality and how we can source our own materials. I believe that working from the very beginning allows for a better understanding of material and how we can manipulate this to produce something unique and sentimental. I enjoy exploring craft practice in my work as I feel that there is a real value in the processing of material and simple repeated actions involved in this to produce highly skilled craft works. The natural world is a strong theme throughout the majority of my work, I have an interest in creatures and species adaptation and how this is associated to cultural heritage. I want my work to gently bring attention and appreciation to the animals, plants and minerals from which things are made and our lives are founded upon.
