Scarlett is a recent MFA graduate from Elam, Auckland, with deft command of materials and form. As a starting point for making work she begins with one raw material, then chooses another material that responds to it. It is a process that allows her to discover new structures and compositions, and also identify any flaws in the materials.

Building Souvenir is at the same time both fragile and robust. Scarlett is drawn to binaries, and treats her materials in a way that can be surprising, yet has its own logic.
