Collaboration

by Oliver Smith

Creative potential can increase exponentially through dialogue and collaboration. I have enjoyed working with other craftspeople, artists and designers as well as professionals from a more diverse range of fields in the development of many projects. The ideal is for the whole to become greater than the sum of its parts.
