This collection of porcelain and glass tableware represents an exploration of the relationships that develop between objects as they are arranged and utilised. Contrasts in texture and density of materials create opportunities for unexpected harmonies or delightful incongruities that reveal themselves when different pieces are displayed, together or used at table. By encouraging creativity and experimentation in this way, the collection allows the user to explore their own relationship with the individual pieces - a dialogue through use.

The process of making these objects is essential to developing the ideas they represent. Forms are inspired by the qualities of the materials. Porcelain has strikingly different properties when using different techniques. Finely thrown and drizzled slip conveys translucent elegance, but when thickly sculpted in its raw state the density and opacity captures a spontaneous gesture. Teapots, jugs, cups, saucers, cake plates and dessert bowls are designs that draw inspiration from Meissen porcelain and traditional Venetian glassware.
