Each bowl is made from one single piece of folded sheet steel that has been laser cut, so there is very little waste from production.
These items were produced during my time in Sweden. They were my final project on my glass design course.
They are a collection of modular vases. The vases have a lip which allows them to be mixed and matched to suit various lengthened stems of flowers.
I developed a new manufacturing process in order to achieve the lip
The very first prototype to be launched at Milan 2010. The stools are made from sawdust and resin, from a process in its infancy developed by Turners and Moore and Purewhyte (an early version of Kirstywhyte.com).
The Sawdust and resin mix is molded under high pressure and heat. The resulting material can then be worked and finished like timber. This process uses a material that would usually be thrown away; using a mould also means a larger shape can be made with less wastage in comparison to solid timber.
The round ‘space age’ shape and experimental manufacture inspired the name “Gordo”, after the first monkey into space!
Made from Borosilcate glass and manufactured using a process developed with the manufacturer, to create this ‘one piece’ pendant light.
Launched in Milan 2009 as part of Designers Block.
The Hound Tables, Occasional tables made from one sheet of Mild steel, cut and folded so they can tessellate in several configurations.
Carlotta is lamp worked stemware.
The wine glass has been used; developed over hundreds of years, but the overall form still remains the same, I wanted to look at making the over all form more contemporary, without making it un-commercial.
