The details and remembered joys and challenges of those experiences, a practical intelligence and love of ancient, weathered, ambiguous objects, architecture, and slower hand-driven technologies are all reflected in her work. The majority of the surfaces are formed slate reclaimed from local Somerset yards and Cornwall, sea-worn glass, ship-wrecked pottery, durable metal, and anything else interesting she acquires. She also uses stained and handmade Smalti glass for special effects and/or mosaic sections. The furniture and sculpture substrates and adhesives are made using high-quality exterior materials. Care of the pieces is minimal and she recommends wax polishing or painting with water-based sealer periodically to preserve the slate and grout indefinitely. The metal bases and armature are hand-forged by Nathan Bennett from her designs.  The metal is galvanised - dipped in molten zinc unless otherwise stated.
