Personal project - Combining textiles and ceramics.

BIO

The tactile nature of textiles and ceramics is what interests me about working in these materials. Combining them is an exciting challenge and in my current body of work I have developed innovative and playful ways of enhancing the relationship between the two. This collection is designed to be decorative, but could also serve as functional. My main focus has been surface decoration, using decals of machine embroidery to engage with the painted under glaze. The forms are simple to shift the focus onto the playfully decorated surface.
