I have exhibited the collection at London Design Festival and New Designers, London 2013

 

This little creature is inspired by the forest and the Japanese Wabi-Sabi culture:

 

The philosophy of Japanese Wabi-Sabi, is a view which tends to seek the perfect beauty – paradoxically - in the right kind of imperfection. A handmade porcelain object, which doesn’t seem to portray the image of beauty and perfection in the first hand, is seen as the right symmetry between the unforeseen, the unfinished, the intuition and the unexpected. Here, this play of the right dynamic forces seems to reflect the right balance. Whereas a ‘perfect’-made object portrays the soul-less and machine-made, perhaps what we would call the unnatural. ( Taken from my essay on 'Jewellery, Craft and Technology' ,2013)
