The distance between the maker and the user is growing, and with it the understanding and appreciation of skilled craftsmanship. However the majority of craftsmen are also ignoring the     opportunities that new digital making can add to their traditional skills. By considering technology as a barrier instead of a method of support, and favouring craft over the digital or vice versa, we are not able to completely embrace such a blend between traditional craft skills and innovative technologies. I strive to develop a blend between the two, I believe this can result in work that is able to move beyond the limitations of the handmade, and also embrace the use of digital making.
