“I am very inspired by richly decorated objects combined with modern sleek
industrial finishes.

I have in the past year worked with the Portuguese porcelain manufacturer Vista
Alegre and created four large wall installations for the brand’s flagship stores in
Lisbon and Porto. Taking inspiration from decades of Vista Alegre’s production,
I have strived towards uncovering the hidden DNA of the brand to show the raw
inherent beauty of porcelain. Further projects will be launched with Vista Alegre
during 2013.

For my final project I am working with Vista Alegre to create a timepiece
called ‘Memento’. It focuses on clocks as a reminder of time. Both as a reminder
of what ‘now’ means to us, and as an opportunity to pause and reflect on beauty
around us.”
