Whitechapel Gallery Edition
The Whitechapel Gallery invited me to create a new ceramic edition to accompany the exhibition Eduardo Paolozzi, 16 February – 14 May 2017. I was fortunate to have been taught by Paolozzi at the RCA and received the Paolozzi travel scholarship to travel to India during this time. The piece makes visual reference to the digital switch on technological devices. Its title Softswitch, refers to a particular software technology and also describes the dissolving softness of the ceramic glaze. More information

I made these swords when I went camping with some friends from my old school. I wrapped the handle in strips of thin bark and tied them at the end then made the hand guard out of thicker stronger pieces.
