Artists Statement: 

I like to combine architectural, aeronautical and sartorial elements with classical silversmithing techniques and apply them to modern materials. I enjoy the challenge of stainless steel because the final pieces are very usable and easy to look after. I often use reclaimed vintage suiting fabrics and other colourful fabrics to upholster elements of the exteriors, adding warmth and wit to the industrial qualities of stainless steel. The resulting pieces are stylish, useful, and always look like they are going somewhere.
