I am a recent graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Furniture Design and Culture and Sustainability Studies. My present work aims to raise awareness for and critically explore inequalities inherent to contemporary global food systems. Although my studies were completed in a three-dimensional medium, I enjoy working in a variety of two-dimensional and digital mediums. I am an academic at heart and writing is an essential practice that accompanies all of my projects. I am currently based in Berlin, Germany.

EXPLORATIONS IN SLIPCASTING







All of these pieces were made during a six-week intensive slip casting class. I explored as many techniques as possible while learning the process itself. I produced the molds for the plates, cups, jugs, and abstract ovular object pair in the woodshop, with the lathe. On the contrary, I was also interested in the translation of a single-use materials such as a plastic container and aluminium foil into durable, high quality ceramic material. I thoroughly enjoyed this process and hope to continue exploring slip casting and ceramics in future work. Particularly, finding more ways of intersecting the material with my interests in food and dining.
