The collection’s varied surface patterns are obtained by mixing different metal particles with water-based resin and plaster. The metal dust used for the pieces originates from key cutting and other metalworking workshops across London.

But every time I go to my studio I’m excited to see the objects’ changing textures. It’s like each one of them was alive and mutating with time.
The shapes I chose for the RUST range are extremely simple. I wanted to let the material and its visual articulation be the heroes of this series of products”
