Using recovered driftwood, silicone, and LED lights, I created this battery powered light instillation.
This exploration of enfolding form through the process of bent lamination, I wanted to create objects that would wrap into or onto themselves. By allowing for the natural will of the material while employing guided control at certain points, I hoped to create spatially dynamic pieces without the use of a mold.
This table focuses on joinery, with a twist. Dowels hidden within the joinery of two of the table's corners create hinges that allow this simple table to transform into another form. This subtly dynamic object is meant to not only be flexible in form but also in function, either to allow the user to unfold into multiple surfaces, perhaps use as a gradual step stool, or simply keep closed until the urge to unfold strikes!
Materials: Birch Wood
These basketry studies were a result of a material exploration of reed and a technical study of basic basketry techniques
Materials: Ash Wood, Pre-Woven Caning
The physical and conceptual integration of wrapping objects, either with something, around themselves, or onto themselves, in design creates objects that are visually dynamic, yet clear to understand. Discovering this idea of integrating forms into one object started by exploring interlocking geometry that would reflect the same shapes and patterns in everything from the thickness of the material, to its joinery, and even the spacing of its layout.
Repetitive Line Consol
This piece was an exploration of storage and surface, wanting to create visually stimulating yet functional surfaces.
