Working almost entirely with found materials, specifically timber, I see wonder and potential where they may appear on first glance to be none. Often completely detaching myself from the materials original use. My aim is to answer my own question, “Why are we not using up what we already have?" The environment has already paid the price for so much, why take more?
My furniture creations break the mould of the in-vogue concept of merely up-cycling. I search for the beauty hidden in an objects original form. Through slicing, arranging, rearranging and even turning the inside out - I find such beauty.
