Fascinated by the power of tactility, Stephanie embraces the intrinsic qualities of contrasting materials to create her textured surfaces designs. Trapping natural fibres and reclaimed aggregates within high performance composite materials that appear as delicate as porcelain.

Stephanie treats each surface with the same sensitivity that she would a fine textile, her designs challenge our preconceptions of the conventional uses of both the natural and industrial materials she works with.

Her designs feature 3 collections, Crag, Varve and Fibril, each focusing on contrasting tactile qualities such as rough, smooth and soft. Collecting reclaimed elements from across the South West including broken roof slates and shards of hand blown glass from various glass artists, she composes each design carefully to enhance the natural qualities of materials.
