The premise of starting my business was to create small pieces of artwork. Throughout art school at Central St Martins I predominately worked with concrete and metal. I have always been drawn to materials that represent ideas of strength, stability and durability and have industrial aesthetics.  I believe once you have a form of stability, support and structure this then provides the basis for progression, development and growth.

 

I design and make everything by hand. Due to the nature of the materials used, no two pieces are ever the same so my collections offer something unique, design-led and thoroughly authentic.

 

One of my big inspirations is Tadao Ando, a self-taught Japanese architect who mainly uses concrete within his work. His architectural style is said to create a "haiku" effect, highlighting nothingness and empty space to denote the beauty of simplicity.
