My current collections are research-driven and have been formed in response to two Michelin star restaurants; The Kitchen Table, in Marylebone and Sosban & The Old Butchers, on the Isle of Anglesey. These collections have two aims

Firstly, to elevate the relationships between supplier and restaurant through the inclusion of by-products - found in the supplier’s landscape - within my own production methods. The glaze formed for Kitchen Table is developed from the waste oyster shells at Porthilly Oyster Farm.

Secondly, to generate sensual objects that enhance the dining experience of each restaurant; to amplify the sensory experience of the food provoking reflection upon taste and the pleasure of eating.

The collections forge physical and sensory connections between the restaurants, their suppliers and the natural landscape from which the ingredients are sourced.
