I begin sketching with chalk on the ground; this is a part I really enjoy. Making these preliminary impermanent sketches allows a certain freedom. Working through ideas for forms and exploring geometric elements. Puzzling together in two-dimensions, whilst tussling over interpreting these as three-dimensional forms. This then leads on to technical drawings and maquettes. Through all of the steps the ideas are sharpened and refined.
The work I make is often constructed from individual elements, crafted from molten glass. Here the geometric components are fused into a partial hemisphere. The cell-like elements form an organic yet architecturally inspired structure. With multiple imperfect lenses distorting and magnifying our experience.
