Daisy trained in Architecture at Glasgow School of Art before moving south to practice. Architecture instilled in her a fascination with the concept of negative space - that which architects create by enclosure - as well as the creation of a solution through design. After a course in Mould Making and Casting at Central St Martins Daisy was smitten.
Having initially experimented with various construction materials Jesmonite is now the primary material used in the studio. It was developed in the 80s in the UK as an alternative to cast concrete or GRP for the construction industry.
Jesmonite consists of a natural mineral base and a water based binder, resulting in a VOC free, robust, tactile material which has the ability to pick up even the finest detail of a mould and happily carries most of the additions Daisy throws at it.
Alongside Jesmonite her work predominantly focuses on creating unusual and beautiful results with found, waste and reused materials (quite often natural) - responding to my surroundings and environment and celebrating the unique variety these can add to a piece.
