A BA Textile Design Graduate, curious about everything.
Graduating in 2018, I developed a concern for the direction of the
design industry after seeing linear design cycles whilst working at
My design practice has always been about questioning why things
are a certain way – I hope through the medium of materials we can
develop design for a more positive future, with a playful and

150ml - Water
3g - Carrageenan
20ml to 70ml - Glycerine
Depending on the recipe the qualities of the material could led itself to:
1) Furnishing, deck chairs, parasols
4) Clothing - jackets/shoes
climate change is an increasing threat to the bio diversity of marine life. It is hard to predict how nature will adapt to to these changes.
My research hopes to explore how these mineral deposits could be developed into a material that could not only replace unsustainable alternatives but
benefit the shifts in biodiversity within the biomass of the earth.
For these initial experiments I have explored a form of calcified algae that is readily available as plant fertiliser. However, in the future I would love to develop a way to sustainably harvest the calcified matter from my own plants.
