The open-ended purposes of the trays have determined their proportions, aesthetic qualities and final forms.
We train ourselves to use objects of certain shapes/dimensions and we grow to immediately recognise their forms as belonging to very specific functions. In these works, the focus has been on the forms which are most basic and refined in their appearance. The objects each exercise the same principles and technologies, allowing only their proportions and our pre-conceived ideas to create their different purposes. The trays come alive on their own, by drawing on our past experiences with fruits, biscuits, cakes and flowers.
