About me
I am a designer, maker but mainly a silversmith. After finishing my BA Hons in Jewellery and Metalwork at Sheffield Hallam University I continued my studies in Jewellery and Metalwork and received a Masters in Design. My work revolves around interaction and use, through the form and tactile aesthetics of each piece.
Projects
  • The Container Collective
    The Container CollectiveA collection of containers inspired by mechanical mechanisms and movements.
  • Multi-sensory Drinking Experience
    Multi-sensory Drinking ExperienceThis collection of silver and ceramic vessels was designed and made when I was studing my Masters in Design at Sheffield Hallam University. Each vessel has their own character and aim to enhance different senses, through their form, texture, size and finish. Some are shaped to increase the aromas, some to consider where the vessel ‘should’ be drank from and others tactile finishes caused during the making process intrigue the user to caress each mark left from hammer blows in the silver vessels or the considered indents in the ceramic vessels.
