Broken Ocean Installation at Collect 2019, Saatchi Galleries, London

One of the many reasons I went into design is that I really enjoy working with others. Finding someone to work with in a collaborative partnership elevates the ideas and the outcomes.

Collaborators to date include master glass artist, Louis Thompson and textile designer, Ella Doran.

Broken Ocean and the Seven Stages of Degradation with Louis Thompson.

Louis and I started working together in 2016 on what has turned out to be a long term exploration that brings together my collection of ocean plastic pollution picked up from Kamilo beach in Hawaii, waste glass from the hot shop floor and narratives around our oceans and the growing plastic waste problem.

There are many blog entries on the development and making of our collaboration together, take a look under the ‘glass work’ category and ‘drawing’.
