What the Wesley-Barrell craft awards judges said...
“A refreshingly contemporary take on the classic trug. While the fluid form references the traditional process and materials, Crisp adds an unexpected touch by juxtaposing brass and copper with Ash.”
My small batches of steam bent Ash Copper vessels form nature’s carriers or trugs. The inspiration for these practical and sculptural objects comes from the Norfolk reeds and draws on my creative personal connections with local heritage and low tech processes.
My developed craft practise is inspired by historic boat building techniques and copper fixings.
