// ABOUT DAISY YOUNG
Daisy Young is a sculptor who Graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2017. She was the recipient of the Jonathan Harvey studio award and is now based at Turf Projects . Process and material sit at the core of her practice. Daisy is interested in the life cycle of the objects she makes and what it means to labour over an object with a short material permanence. Daisy finds it difficult to not think about what will happen to the material after she no longer has a use for the object. Where will they end up? To what consequence will this have on the environment? These factors have led Daisy to think of processes and materials she can use that have the ability for multiple life spans.
