During my art studies at St. Martin’s and Byam Shaw, I was drawn to making mechanical pieces, particularly ones that related directly to the human form.

One of my first pieces was a chair with it’s back based on the structure of the human spine, translated into wooden block form. The bone structure’s capacity to draw strength from numerous small, interlocking parts has long fascinated me and has led me to replicate human armiture through different materials.

It is with these materials in mind that I made the ‘wooden block’ chairs. That was the starting point for beginning to experiment with cellular forms and the may in which a flexible ‘skin’ could hold liquids in a fixed position.
