I developed the assemblages in my work progressively, combining constructed and found elements to explore the connection between humanity and nature. I expressed the effect of this relationship on both artificial and natural ecosystems through the casting of disposable bottles and the bleached colour. Using traditional craft techniques such as crochet, knitting and shibori in unconventional ways, I developed form and texture to inspire wonder and a greater appreciation of the beauty of the natural world.
