More often than not, my work is inspired by existing forms chosen for their sculpural qualities and re-contextualised, by addition or subtraction, into functional products. My approach developed from the days of being a new designer and being unable to afford new materials. I leverage Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) systems to achieve my desired solutions because i am interested solely in making batch production runs and by so doing offer relatively affordable products. My practice consists largely in engineering solutions (jigs and fixtures) designed to maimise exploitation of CAM systems. My ambition is to set up a self contained digital manufacturing unit so that all or most of my designs can be manufactured in house.
