This piece of work was made in lockdown, just after I was sent home to finish my university course remotely. Whilst this was initially a challenging time as I had to adapt my practice to suit the change in workspace, it also meant that I could access my mum's sewing machine which was the one thing that I craved the most when at university. This piece showed me how the domestic space can work as a studio environment, and the constraints and connotations within this. My current practice revolves around ideas of materiality, use and thing theory - focusing on getting to know a material before stretching, pulling and pushing its qualities to the extreme. I tend to use materials in such a way that the viewer is unsure of the processes involved in the making of the object, often using untraditional materials within in a traditional process.
