The Hermit's Beard

This book is a collective tale that has been comprised through a game of consequences, allowing each participant to control the structure and content of their interpretation of the story.


My first tangible response to 'The Library of Babel' by Jorge Luis Borges, which looks at the formal qualities and structure of books.

Precious Book

This book has been made in response to text from Jorge Luis Borges's 'The Library of Babel', it consists of individual's interpretations of what they consider to be their most precious book, ranging from a Textbook of Clinical Medicine to Mr Men.


The intention of my manifesto is to demonstrate my approach towards my practice, it consists of seven ingredients that I consider to be essential codes of conduct that I adhere to within my work.

Perler Beads

I have been researching Joseph Cornel's work and I adore his boxes that reflect a sense of nostalgia within a child-like persona, in response I decided to categorise some of my personal collections using Perler Beads. Does anyone remember these little plastic cylinders that you place on a grid and iron to seal? As a child I used them to make many random tea coasters and intend to reacquaint myself with that hobby.

'All About Me' Print

This A1 print is based on another adaptation of my crockery collection and influenced by a trip to Florence where I discovered the delights of Italian paper merchants and their wood block prints of decorative patterns.

Here is my first collection of pottery designs produced in response to a brief entitled 'All About Me'.  The designs are based on my random collection of crockery and my adoration for design from the 1950's. Furthermore, I thoroughly enjoy baking a good cake and complimenting the slice with a cup of tea, so this was a perfect excuse to make a new tea set.
