About

I’m an Edinburgh based designer who makes simple geometric objects for people to use and enjoy. I make jewellery, lighting and home décor and love not only beauty but also functionality. Working mostly with wood, my designs are made to expose and highlight the natural beauty of the material. Every single object is unique in shape and colour. My project is called Polymorphics; POLY from Greek means- many, MORPH- form. Inspired by modern architecture, geometry and nature I always find a lot of inspiration in my surroundings; fascinating shapes, lines, forms, vibrant colours and textures. By using a natural material like wood, I’m trying to capture the pure beauty of it and transform it into a contemporary object. I believe that beautiful and functional objects should be affordable and accessible to everyone and would like to give people beautiful objects for their every day life. It’s fantastic to go to galleries and admire different forms of art, but I would like to give people an opportunity to have an unique sculpture to take home, love and use. I’m proud to be a woodworking woman and through my work, I would like to encourage more girls to try and learn how to work with wood and change the mentality of this male dominated industry.
