Ephemerality and transformation, light and shadow, structure and collapsibility, the designed and the organic are all qualities that I explore in my work to manufacture moments of surprise and delight.

I believe in the universal concept of wonder. The lump in your throat, swelling emotion when you look out into a vast ocean, a sunbeam breaks through the clouds or when you stare at the rain through a foggy window. A sense of mystery, calm and peace wash over.

This initial reaction to the object then progresses into a curiosity about the process. Using my industrial design training, I devise systems and processes to create these works using computer aided design and man-made materials. Once the planning is done, the execution becomes meditative with its repetitive tasks and rhythm. And I find peace.
