I am fascinated by the relationship between man-made structures and biological forms. Forms such as polyhedra, geodesic domes and honeycombs are common throughout the natural and man made world as being the most efficient structural solution for a given situation. In my jewellery and holloware I explore these forms using both CAD 3D printing technologies and intuitive hand fabrication techniques to develop beautiful pieces that are lightweight and complex.
