Moiré is an enquiry into material and process.

My interest lies in where craft processes lie in contemporary design. In this project I have subverted one of the oldest crafts in existence, the coiling of clay, by automating the process using an extruding machine. Once fired this uniform layered construct of ceramic produces startling results, the ceramic actually behaves like a spring.

The dip dying process is again another process not usually associated with ceramics, however I found that the porosity of the work lended itself to absorbing colour. The piece is of no practical function but demonstrates how, once put under different conditions, we can still cause a material to behave completely unexpectedly.
