Molten Memories
Graduation Design Academy Eindhoven
Large Scale Floor Piece from Found Materials
2021

How are memories shaped and stored? The Molten Memories floor piece embodies this from a toddlers perspective, from a level close to the ground, where fascination lies in every detail Discarded materials from every part of the house are re-imagined to form a living landscape that reminds us of our most playful days. Remember how the couch cushions were like mountains to climb? How creaking floorboards seemed to come alive? What the relief of cool tiles felt like or the tickling grass between garden stones? Just like memories, the sections melt together and the lines between fact and fiction start to blur.

Soft Silica
Graduation Design Academy Eindhoven
Produced in the workshops of Make Eindhoven
2021

Soft Silica is a new expression for glass that lies on the boundary between textile and glasswork. The material is brought to life and appears to be frozen in time, capturing the way glass melts in a static object through with the tactility of a textile. The project currently consists of glass tapestries and sculptural vessels as well as an extensive and ever growing archive of samples. It is a continuing glass research that evolves and develops with each iteration, to find future possibilities and applications for this exciting new material.

Fluid Furniture
Furniture made from curbside couches
In collaboration with Barry Llewellyn
2020

Fluid furniture is a research into the new horizon of the material world. How will our approach to material change once we no longer have virgin material?
Fluid Furniture comprises of Lalalamp and Chchchair which are made entirely from discarded couches. The process was carried out in quarantine as the domestic space became a furniture transformation factory. From weaving, melting, rope making and sculpting, Barry Llewellyn and I utilised all the ingredients found in curbside couches to form our creations.

Sasha
Unisex Industrial Knit Underwear
In collaboration with Alice Watel Produced at Textiel Museum
2020

These underwear, made in collaboration with Alice Watel, are designed to be as durable underwear possible. Knitted in one piece, they are produced with almost no waste. The elastic is removable for easy repair and the rest is made from only one natural material to facilitate recycling. Made to be universal they carry a unisex design. All models are wearing the same pair of underwear.

Natural Silkscreen Library
Colour Research
2019

A documentation of over 100 silk screened colour swatches using all-natural pigments.This project is an inquiry into the value of using natural colours that sees their value as more than just an environmental alternative and seeks a colour palette to be used on precisely patterned textiles

Lichen Lab
Bio Material Research
2019

Lichen can stay dormant for years because of their potential to act like a sponge and quickly absorb water when necessary. This quality makes them a perfect material that can be molded very quickly. I explored traditional papermaking techniques to make biodegradable packaging and paper samples. Lichen Lab is in the Biomaterials archive in Eindhoven.

Synesthesia Alphabet
Shape and Colour Research
2019

I interpret sounds as colours and shapes. This is called synethesia or the involuntary blending of different senses. I made an alphabet to express this through translating the phonetic alphabet in shape and colour since phonetic symbolic alphabet relies on sounds instead of letters. I wanted to express this condition in a way that is rational and understandable.

Poised on the boundary
between sound
and sight, a
new type of
translation
emerges

Thermal Spectrum
Continuing Research
2019

I came upon the surprising discovery that heat changes the colour of some synthetic textiles while still maintaining their flexible and tactile qualities. All textiles in this example are blue before heating. This transformation offast fashion is achieved without the need for additional material or chemical treatment. A fascinating continuing research into this technique to apply it to re-invent textile waste.
