I am interested in issues of longevity and people's perceptions of value and disposability. I aim to create objects that are engaging and above all work in real life, by focusing on appropriate use and understanding of materials and manufacturing techniques.

The work I have produced during my final year aims to explore several ways that design can affect the longevity of an object. For example, using the way materials change over time to create an object that will age well, or looking at how people use objects in different ways, in order to design something that does not over dictate use.
