The Story of 'Aerate'
“I believe we should be using materials more efficiently. Inspired by the structure of bone, I found that adding air to a material could not only reduce material usage, but also offer new properties and potential applications.”
“My design process is very much centred around thinking through making, discovering new potential through the hands-on manipulation of materials. I have created a collection of three ceramic objects created using varying volumes of air, which led to the discovery of three different functions – cooling, filtering, insulating – and therefore three different potential applications.”
