Since graduating in 1999 I have worked full time as a designer & maker in metal.

I enjoy working in a range of different metals such as sterling silver, 18 karat gold, stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, copper and brass. As well as a range of subjects and scales, from candlesticks and fruit bowls to abstract vessels and large scale sculptural pieces.
Most of my work in the last 6 years has been the result of applying a strict set of rules through out my design and work process: The starting point for each piece of work is a single piece of metal. I either add or remove any elements. I simply have to work with what is there. I find my inspiration in the restrictive work process itself and the challenge to stretch its limitations.

My latest work, such as the ‘Negative Series’, is a move towards a more abstract expression. Without strictly following my previous ‘set of rules’, it continues the exploration of negative space, optical illusion and deconstruction.
