New Body Of Work


This is the first in my new series of work inspired by scarring and facial disfigurastion.

This has developed with my research into the structure of our skin and what happens to it and ourselves when it becomes damaged. It is a little known fact that 1 in 150 people in the UK suffer some degree of scarring or disfigurement. I wish to transform what people can often see as distasteful or ugly, deformed or offensive into something beautiful, alluring and coveted. I believe silverware should be held and caressed, just as those with misfortune should be loved and admired.
