Creating spaces is about forming areas, within your home, that are dedicated to a specific aspect of your daily life. This project focuses on rest, relaxation and socializing. My aim is to make a furniture collection specifically designed for this purpose. I feel that today’s society forgets to stop, unwind and reflect on what it has achieved. I want to create a space where the sole purpose is to relax and socialize with friends and family.
Due to Covid-19 many people have been forced to work from home. This has meant for many; they can not escape their workspace. My hope is to create a place that would sit in someone’s home that allows them to separate themselves and step away from work, whether it’s for an hour or the evening.
In this project my aim is join my two favourite materials and have them work in perfect harmony with one another. I am very passionate about wood, furniture, ceramics and table wear. My aim is to join all of these together to create fun and interactive furniture that uses ceramics with a new and interesting approach.
I hope to use the materials in such a way that people question their perception of what is capable, going against the norm and expectation. I want my work to encapsulate a sense of joy, playfulness and optimism, something I feel has become lost in the off the shelf world we live in today.
