About me

Working With materials such as base and precious metals. I use Processes, silversmithing techniques and tool making. To create my own set of tools for each vessel, this that allow me create complex forms that are scored and folded which create large-scale functional or decorative vessels. With highly detailed panels and surfaces which have been acid etched and patented. Using colour that simulates how nature and time effect surfaces, that you find within the urban environment. This Works in relation with the main form to create a tension between each surface. Seen as collection of vessel, that can come together to work in relation to one an other. With each vessel been completely unique, I encourage that the view spends time and energy to look at each vessel. From all angles so they can discover interesting qualities within each vessel be it the form, use of colour or to create their own visual senses within the pieces. The collection aims to question the environment we occupy, by taking the time just to look and take in are surroundings discovering beauty no matter where we are.
