Naomi Mcintosh works on different scales from jewellery and sculptural objects to installations. With an architectural background she creates spaces by using techniques similar to an architectural model maker. With precise geometry the pieces explore the relationship between the body and objects and how volumes, patterns, planes and forms are seen. Primarily working in wood her work is produced by combining a broad range of skills using digital and hand processes taking inspiration from pattern, movement, landscape and the natural world. By using planes and lines, forms are suggested, capturing volumes, transforming 2D surfaces into 3D objects.
She exhibits internationally and showcased in major galleries. She has a wide range of experience teaching and leading lectures, workshops, skills sharing and undertaking interdisciplinary projects informed by creative practice and collaborative experiences. Projects include Lead Designer on the 2018 V&A Dundee Scottish Design Relay project for Aberdeen working with young design people to celebrate design heritage, ‘Parallel Practices’, with Informatics at Kings College London and the Crafts Council and 2016/2017 residency with the British Council in Thailand and Scotland.
