This new collection will be shown for the first time at this year’s New Designers, at my One Year On stand and consist of functional silver containers which fit together. Templates and folding are key in my practice and I enjoy the challenge of using one continuous 2D sheet to create a 3D design. The problem solving element forces me to slow down, to be patient and considered.
I am interested in the relationship my pieces have with each other, how they are rigid yet have a sense of connection when placed in their groupings, interlocking with their counterparts. My designs have a matt finish to the exterior which looks warm and inviting to handle, allowing the viewer to physically interact with each piece while the form subtly dictates how the hand will hold them. A contrasting interior will draw the eye to the lines of the modernist and architectural forms.
