This research investigates craft-based practice as a socially interactive process despite being an individual executed product, where dialogical methods expose contradictions and nurture mindful interrogation: a system of thinking. A world-wide network of research links is being established with other craft researchers, organisations and institutions. The Research Fellow is Dr L.
