I'm a Contemporary artist driven by material, process and techniques. I predominantly work with base and precious metals making thought provoking abstract sculptural jewellery and objects that explore people relationship and connection within the surrounding of public spaces. I believe that our surroundings influence every aspect of our lives whether at home or in other variety of places.

As a result, my fascination of materials led me to explore the intrinsic relationship of glass and metal. 'The alchemy, parallel and hot fusion of glass and metal.' I experiment and developed my own metal alloys which I successfully mix with glass and kiln-cast into aesthetic form of art objects in abstract colours, patterns and tactile texture. The exploration and experimentation of materials and techniques not only allow me to be creative but it does also evoke my passion to make.

I use both ancient and modern techniques in my work.

It is my aspiration to engage the viewers with my work to form their own connections.

Details about work or recent projects

The abstract colours and tactile texture pieces are made using the techniques of lost wax casting, core casting and mix of different metal alloys. Some part of the pieces are left unpolished, inviting viewers to feel the texture of the artwork.
