My approach to teaching
Through demonstration and explanation I illustrate the ideas behind the forms that are to be explored/made during a course. I follow this up with one-to-one contact during the working sessions.
Inspiration for my own work
I take inspiration from well-made and beautiful things whatever material they are made from. I find that keeping my eyes open and remaining alert often throws up unexpected inspirations.
