New Collections

If you were to map out my design inspiration it would be a series of venn diagrams. My influences are far reaching so in order to design a coherent collection I look to see where the overlaps are in the diagrams. In the new designs I see the overlap of ancient and modern design motifs. Some pieces repeat textural patterns from previous seasons but they are used in a more architectural way. How the pieces live next to each other frequently underlies my inspiration. The collage process plays a big role in how I work as do the materials I chose to make the masters for casting. Because I work without drawings a great part of final pieces are serendipity and luck. I just have to trust my intuition.
