Ceramics with a focus on lost histories and analogue methods.
Each piece is handmade with the intention of breathing new life into forgotten histories. Outdated functional wares and design methods of the 19th century and domestic rural-living are a source of inspiration.
Using clay as a medium is also a way to humbly address both the permanence and fleeting nature of human's relationship with the natural environment; An homage to vanitas still-life paintings.
Experimentation with analogue methods are used for building, decoration and firing.
