My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.

Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.

Bowls
marbled paper, paper table mats, Aperol, 00 fine flour
Edition of 10

Venetian carnival masks are used as moulds, two layers of paper mâché, the first layer consisting of table mats sourced from Venetian restaurants, the second of hand printed marbled paper produced by the oldest shop in Venice. Both materials fixed using a bonding paste mixed from Aperol and 00 fine flour.

Removed from their moulds when wet and malleable, the vessels were first presented slowly drying, changing colour and shape as they contracted and hardened.

Handmade in the A plus A Gallery during the official opening of Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market. The project is the result of an invitation from the curator Anna Volpe, and the working team of Curatorial Studies Venice.
