Intro
Even though I’m trained in both traditional techniques and computer-aided making, I much prefer to make by hand. My practice is as much about the process as the finished object, the material speaks to you along the way and the final piece can end up being quite different than what I intended, you don’t really get that chance with a computer. I bring technology into my practice more by creating stop-motion videos of my work to help bring the pieces to life.
