I have recently found myself working with colour from pigments drawn out of foraged plant life. The work of designers Blond & Beiber situated in Berlin have been an interest to me. Sustainability is their prime concern along with the simple analogue processes that bring the experience of process and making into a genuine and thoughtful process. Their focus on perfection and a refined flawless realization of materials resonates with me. Recent processes I am exploring are the refining of plant pigments to a purer and genuine form of liquid. My process has no intervention of any other materials; pigment is formed through manipulation and physical refining only. The transient temporality of these pigments are what interest me. The intervention of the elements and how they change their consistency, texture & solidity.
