I'm interested in our relationship with objects, how we interact with them, how we value them, and how we discard them. I often reflect these ideas in my work; how components connect, interact and move in relation to one another, how light hits it, or how a person may touch or use an object. Many of my previous projects have an engineered quality to them- they feature sharp edges, smooth arcs, proportionate geometry and simplistic forms. My methodical way of working is derived from my interests in mathematics and science.Locked Pro Plan feature
Slashed machine times, improved programming efficiency and developed various machining and organisation strategies to enhance work flow. My main duties included programming and machining a diverse range of projects to very high standards, tight deadlines, and precise tolerances.

Photoshopping jewellery compositions, designing and making new jewellery stands. This was a very short internship due to my living location. I worked a lot from home producing research and visuals for their social media pages. Later on in the internship I designed some very simple Jewellery stands to go with their Autumn collection - these were essentially blocks of oak which the jewellery would rest on for photographing.
As Haidée was presenting her work at 'Maison et objet' in Paris, a lot of prep work had to be done, including the designing and making of the stands she'd take. I performed a lot of research tasks to be evaluated for future products and into retailers that could stock and sell her work.
Ann Carrington is a sculptor, I assisted with Photoshopped visuals and a lot of the making processes like brazing, welding, assembling, glueing, fixing, sewing to name a few; as a highly skilled maker I can be found taking part in the most intricate tasks - but I'm able to handle much more heavy industrial tasks too. I also produce a lot of essential graphic work, this can go into the work itself, as visual representations for clients, or as invitations to events. I recently put the designs together for the large 3x4m banners that hung outside the Royal College of Art for her exhibition 'Pop Goes The Weasel.' This was an essential tool in attracting the public into the gallery space.
Three year course enhancing making skills and design skills to build a portfolio ready for work in the industry. As part of the course I spent a semester abroad at the prestigious NABA Milano with excellent results.
Cutting Edge and OnOffice teamed up to create a design competition for students to design a desk to be made primarily from corian. The winning design, with a worth of up to £10,000 will be made and showcased at many design events. The design by myself, Taytum Cotton and Callum Gwinnell won the competition.
Design students at the university are asked to produce design proposals for trophies to be given away at an awards ceremony a few months later. My design proposal was accepted and realised.
3D design students were asked to propose designs that would fit within Vitra's range of furniture and products. My design was shortlisted by a Vitra employee in sales.
An award for the highest achieving student of the course - where myself and a handful of other award winners are taken to Prague for a short cross-disciplinary course, as ambassadors for Plymouth university.
Scholarship awarded to those who achieved AAB+ or equivalent during their A-levels.
