Ffion has worked as a plasterer for over fifteen years. Her personal practice is motivated by a belief that the patterns and motifs of decorative plasterwork have lost their relevance within the field of contemporary architecture. Her work explores opportunities for creating contemporary architectural ornament using traditional trade skills and she draws inspiration from the underlying geometry of historic pattern structures. Through her practice she hopes to demonstrate that decorative plastering can be more than a heritage craft - imitating and restoring historic designs - and that it still has a place within the field of contemporary architecture and design.
