I’m a recent graduate from Camberwell College of the Arts, where I studied Three Dimensional Design and achieved a 2:1, specializing in ceramics, however during my studies I also worked a lot with casting systems and methods such as slip casting, resin, Jesmonite, and plaster to create sculptural and functional forms.
Using this experience I’ve often advised and consulted artists looking to create sculptural out of materials to replicate marble or to replicate shapes in ceramics to alter the connotations of the object to show in galleries in exhibitions since graduating.
I was involved in a group exhibition in West Silvertown, an exhibition called Underground on the Up, where I advised the curator Andrew Gillman, on how to cast and encapsulate 90s relics to display using a variety of casting resins, as well as replicating some objects using the Jesmonite Casting system.
Most recently I was Giovanni Vetere’s consultant regarding his recent works which he wanted to create of ceramics, as well as the fabrication of a plaster counterpart which was made of plaster with an armature and hessian structure, coated with an epoxy resin to replicate a glazed ceramic sculpture. This was due to exhibit at Lychee One Gallery in East London, however, due to recent circumstances it has been pushed back.
Recently I’ve adapted to creating virtual works, 3D mapping objects using to work in augmented reality to work in ‘Virtual exhibitions’. Currently helping a fashion designer-maker called Celia Rollan to create virtual garments to use in social media, away her practise can develop during social distancing.
