The projects below embody different typologies of form and incorporate elements of aesthetics, utlity, and physical interaction. 

Form Studies: Explorations of Artifacts

Concrete Forms

These concrete forms play with the idea of satisfaction of perception: They look a certain way, but feel a different way.

This dichotomy provides a dynamic experience: it is captivating at first sight and under scrutiny.

These forms display a soft, almost fragile structure through a raw, indestructible material. 

 

Primitive Hand Tools

These forms are inspired by primitive stone tools made by Paleolithic humans. Pictured is a knife and a hand axe, respectively. These balance ergonomics while drawing inspiration from tools made by early humans.

 

Spatula

This spatula is an exploration of natural, flowing curves. It is made with red alder and prototyped with low density foam. 

 

Footstool

This footstool explores form through only rectilinear geometries. It is meant to engage negative space while also maintaining the functionality of a footstool. This stool is made of solid poplar.
