A while ago I set up an Etsy shop in the hopes that it would inspire me to think more about the kinds of things I like making, and how to create an identity through the products. Some of the designs are from my degree work, and some from subsequent MA work.

A ‘bricoleur’…”speaks not only with things…but through the medium of things: giving an account of his personality and life by the choices he makes between the limited possibilities. The ‘bricoleur’ may not ever complete his purpose but he always puts something of himself into it.”

Claude Levi-Strauss in Sherry Turkle (Ed.), Evocative Objects, Things We Think With, (USA: MIT Press, 2007) p.22
