Originally from rural Galloway, Scotland, I live and work in Hackney, London.
Before joining the RCA, I was awarded a Distinction in my Ceramics and Product Design HND from Morley College, 2020.
Graduating with Honours in Communications and Mass Media from Glasgow Caledonian University, I pursued a career in audio and video: sound engineering and projection at Barbican Arts Centre, London, and AV Management at Science Museum and King’s College London, before starting my own production company, Franklyn Media Ltd.
In 2016 I combined my love of video production and ceramics. My film The Drop was selected from an open call for films looking at our relationship with materials and making. This was awarded a screening at Reel to Reel, the Crafts Council and Crafts magazine Film Festival, held at Picturehouse Central in London’s West End during London Craft Week. The same year, I was on stage with Duncan Hooson for a Q+A after a screening of The Drop at Ceramic Art London, Central Saint Martin’s, London.
My work has been exhibited recently at Milan Design Week 2023; 3rd Floor Only, RCA, 2023 and New Designers, London, 2022.
I am working towards, a multi-material, Studio Ewan Crallan.
