“‘Architecture begins when you place two bricks carefully together’
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. 1959
 
This fundamental link between ceramics and architecture offers the medium expansive possibilities. My designs offer such a blue-print process that can be modified to re-define space, heighten acoustics, modify lighting or production of ornamental adornment. 
 
Through use of computer modeling software and 3D printing technology, coupled with the flexibility and aesthetic of origami, crisp lines and contours can continue from the structure of surroundings to articulate interior space.
 
Fabricated through 3D printing technology and transferred into ceramic through the traditional hand skill of mould making and slip casting, ‘Between the Fold’ inhabits the space between the handmade and digital experience.”
