I am happiest when tinkering, making and exploring ideas through a process of discovery and problem solving. Unfortunately, there never seems enough hours in the workshop to realise all the ideas. Therefore, I am always eager to get back to the bench.
The aesthetics of decay and obsolescence along with the beauty of impermanence form the provocation for my making. I use enamel in an experimental way to expand preconceptions of a finished surface, so asking questions about beauty and value.
HS4 will be the start of many conversations. Those with my mentor, those with fellow handshakers and a whole lot with myself. Who knows what the outcome will be, but with all good conversations I am sure there will be a lot of coffee, a few beers, late nights and maybe the odd melt down. Oh yes, and a lot more tinkering at the bench.
