Hi, I’m Lucy. I am an advocate for the importance of justification in the design process. Form, function and footprint are held at equal importance. It is not just about making things beautiful. For me, the justification can spout beauty. Being in the position to have a hand in what is brought into the world effects how I approach all projects. I am a believer that we have enough stuff and are rich in materials that we overlook.
This has heavily influenced my final year project. I’m currently working on creating a material utilising waste material from the fishing industry. My experiments have uncovered how waste material from the fishin industry can be combined with organic binders to form a PLA-like material. I am now looking into the properties and applications of the fully degradable and compostable material.
