Using the technique of batik - achieving designs on fabric by applying wax as a dye resist - I produce a range of items from wallhangings and cushions through to waistcoats and scarves. My designs are drawn from simple geometrics, celtic knotwork and patterns found in nature - veins on a leaf, light on water - translated into rich colours.
With a selection of old worn hammers I strike a mixture of surfaces onto my tableware. I like the idea of making work look and feel non precious. With each hammer blow I texture the surface making it rough or very subtle. Used with smooth polished edges and touches of gold my aim is to encourage the owner to take their time to feel, explore and enjoy the piece.
