The Reef Series combines an innovative exploration of textile materiality with a refreshing colour scheme and warm tactility. The unique knitting and casting process brings the pieces to life, evocative of coral reefs and underwater life. Due to the movement of the textile during the casting process, each shelfflows in a unique way. The flocked nylon coating provides acoustic dampening properties, allowing the shelves to function as acoustic panels.

Large Scale Floor Piece from Found Materials
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 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.
Furniture made from curbside couches
In collaboration with Barry Llewellyn
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.
Hand tufted Wall Tapestries made from combining ceramic, textile, resin and wood
An expansion of the Molten Memories carpet series, this trio of wall pieces relate to the temporal, sometimes fantastical nature of childhood memory in domestic space. Custom glazes merge into resin and tufting grows between the cracks as ceramic, wood and textile marry together, similar to the way we remember places from the past.
Unisex Industrial Knit Underwear
In collaboration with Alice Watel Produced at Textiel Museum
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.
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
