Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, 2013, BDes (Hons) (1st Class)
I am an artist who takes risks, who is always ready for a challenge. The process of trial, failure, and decision making pushes me outside of my comfort zone, bringing something new to my work and creating potential for new possibilities.
I am an art jeweller, yet refuse to design work constrained by conventional forms. In today’s culture, jewellery is more than a means to accessorise us or present our self-image. Contemporary jewellers create objects that transform materials from their original value and build closer ties between art and people through physical interaction. I have a continuing interest in working as a socially engaged practitioner to facilitate public discussion on a social issue. I make objects that invite people to interact with them, thereby enabling discourse and discussion around the issues that lie at the heart of my practice.
In my future projects, I am interested in exploring the dynamic subject – social relations based on my observations of human behaviours. By synthesising traditional techniques and modern technology, I will create objects that bring art out of a gallery setting, to link up individuals with various degrees of social conditions during their everyday lives.
