A large part of my interdisciplinary practice involves working site-specifically, exploring scale and making work that focuses on how we interact with spaces and the impact these works have on the human senses.

Materiality, physicality and presence of material are always evident.

Conscious of consumption of materials and resources I approach each project in a considered manner, by questioning how materials are used, where they are sourced and the permanence or impermanence of these objects or installations.

Trained as a ceramicist I predominately work with clay and often use material from the site’s locality – soils, clays, brick or pigments, in some cases in their raw state – so to draw attention to or to reimagine the nuances that can be regarded as unimportant or ordinary.

I am a member of Haptic/Tacit, working collectively with four other makers from the Crafts Councils hothouse programme in 2013, and also one half of the collaborative partnership with Alexandra Mazur-Knyazeva – we founded Perpendicular studio together in 2012 shortly after graduating from the MA Design (Ceramics) course at Central Saint Martins.
