Within my degree I have experimented with structure and material which have led me to be confident within a choose practise for my final year and continuing work. Working with metal excites me more than any other material I have used. It is important to me for my work to be practcal, logic and engaging.
Peer group: 3D Objects, although each person in this group uses different materials and concepts we all have relevance to one another, a tactile approach.

At the moment I am working on a journal blog that will follow my process and technique through to the end of the FMP, and also catalog past and present projects. http://mkay-fmpjournal.blogspot.com/
