As a maker, I enjoy creating objects for everyday use that bring poetry and harmony to our daily rituals. With my experience in music and literature, I aim to create lyrical and rhythmic three-dimensional objects by working with both form and surface. The white porcelain of my functional, angular forms serves as a blank canvas for compositions featuring simple silkscreened line drawings and brightly coloured geometric shapes. All of these elements come together to create dynamic landscapes with nautical and alpine imagery. And as function is of primary concern in my work, I ensure that each object is ergonomic and a pleasure to use.
