I’m intrigued by the effects of erosion and decay on surfaces. I am interested in the metal surfaces made in industry and the striking colours and textures that are created when these surfaces are exposed to the environment. I’m also inspired by the geological processes of the planet and, in particular, sedimentary and volcanic layers. I use these inspirations to create a developing series of forms and surface finishes that embody my ideas. My forms are minimalistic, composed and iconic in design, in order that they harmonise with the complex surface textures, avoiding a discord between the form and finish.
