Outside of Architecture I like to engage in other creative endeavours such as gardening, fermenting alcohol, working with wood and playing with clay.
Oiled timber coasters. Cut from a Privet branch.
Hall table handmade from Victorian ash slats, Tasmanian oak legs, brass threaded rod dowel and brass angle clashing.
Scale model of a work in progress dining table.
Hand sculpted ceramic houses, painted with underglazes and sometimes combined into scenes with wire, nails, branches and other assorted materials.
Self watering, double walled, earthenware plant pot. Painted with underglazes. Water is drawn in from the reservoir via capillary action to hydrate the plant. It is based on a buried 'Olla', a historic Spanish irrigation technology.
Blackbutt, reclaimed oregon and tawa bookshelf. Assembled without any glue, nails or screws.
Dry seasonal fruit wines including honey, orange, watermelon, pear and apple which I've fermented and bottled.
I designed and built my courtyard garden in 2011 and now enjoy relaxing and pottering about in it.
