Ingrid’s own research and practice deals with the synergies between traditional skills and new technologies. She explores how both the application and ideology of new technologies can influence the ways in which we conceive, produce and perceive the crafted object.

In 2010 she was a recipient of the Creative Wales award for individual practice. Ingrid currently works with historical ceramic artefacts and uses augmented reality, 3D scanning and 3D printing as well as traditional ceramic processes to both physically and digitally hack these artefacts, Ingrid’s work attempts to animate the inanimate, and provide the viewer with a different experience of the familiar, to do this, she plunders ceramic history to make new and interesting contemporary narratives, that also speak of traditional craft values.
