CEMENT AND CONCRETE

Whilst concrete is a basic building block of most structures that we
see and use every day, it is something that we don’t think much
about. However, concrete is usually the material of choice when
compressive strength and durability are paramount.
According to the Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative, concrete “is
strong and durable, resistant to deterioration and damage. It buffers
temperature, and it can be coloured. It is versatile, allowing a large
range of shapes, textures, and structural approaches to create the
function, look, and feel appropriate to the project. It is also versatile
in the flexibility of component materials, a quality which both extends
the range of performance properties— permeability, and strength—
and allows variation in the resources used to produce it. With this
being said I love experimenting with various natural products and byproducts
that brings out the aesthetic textures and beauty of
concrete. A few of these include coffee, sand, glass, salts etc

Pottery

 

One of the things I love about working with clay is the versatility of the
medium. This versatility allows me to enjoy creating unusual pieces
with slabs or coils, and wonderful unique pieces combining these
methods. Decorating takes this creative process further whilst using
an array of different natural elements and painting techniques.

Repurposing

This medium is as old as human civilisation and therefor i love
investigating the way that different societies re-appropriate the
artefacts of older cultures into new and creative ways. Bringing an old
or broken piece of work to a new way of usage is both gratifying and
practical as opposed to discarding.

Other materials and mixed media

This medium allows me to use my passion to its full extent whilst
experimenting with different materials and processes. in this issue
some of these products include fabric, plaster, wood, metals and the
list is endless and the results are unique every time.
