A passionate maker, i enjoy nothing more than getting my hands dirty and exploring materials and forms that benefit ourselves and the environment. Mainly working in recycled and waste materials to try and help spread the need to care and cherish our planet by minimising our impact and maximising our love!

A seaweed and recycled paper composite material. This project aimed to change perspectives of the hugely abundant plant many regard as ocean waste. Brown algae contain alginates that act as a natural polymer, binding the algae and recycled paper together with a little water.
Collection of recycled pieces built for the Berliner Bar in Beeston (Nottingham, UK). Using mostly pallet wood for the outdoor bench, hanging sign, coffee table. Painted pillar using artwork from the East Side Gallery in Berlin as inspiration.
Returning to the Berliner Bar in Beeston, Nottingham to replace 6 of the original tables that had been made using green wood resulting in warping and uneven table tops!
The new tables were created using a variety of old timbers, fence panels and old scaffolding boards for the table tops. The legs were made using the warped timbers from the previous tables.
Our fruit inspired Upcycling Sculptures was the first collaboration between all members of MANDIN.
During my time in Greece, the quiet evenings allowed for a small project to slowly tick over. The board was made from scraps of 2x2 and other off cuts, whilst the pieces were hand carved from broken branches.
The little crane is a simple luminaire compromising of only 4 components and no fixings. 8 different lighting angles can be possible from the simple joints.
University Lighting project
I was lucky enough to spend the autumn of 2017 living and working in a remote valley in Greece, helping with Helios, an autonomous off grid eco house. Whilst the whole project was very experimental and bustling with new eco technologies my focus was on reducing everyday waste, how that waste could be used, how to live off the land and utilise the surrounding environment without having a detrimental impact.
During my time in the house many improvements were needed and a lot of the time was spend doing odd design jobs to improve the standard of living or focusing my energies on the garden.
A heavy duty toolbox for offsite projects on large wheels.
Specially sized draws and storage sections provide space for up to 20 power tools, batteries, chargers, screws and other bits and pieces.
