Harriet Watts is an object designer and maker. Through exhibition and production pieces her work explores less material intense ways of living, including questioning the notion that durability equals sustainability. Her practice also encompasses developing adaptable objects to meet the changing physical and emotional environments of the contemporary world. Her work is often experimental, bringing unexpected ideas, materials and processes together in a surprising and new way.
Harriet is currently a Tutor and Lecturer at UNSW Art & Design in both the Bachelor of Design and Masters of Coursework programs. She is also a founding Director and Designer at The Fortynine Studio, where she has worked with organisations and designers such as Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Australian Design Centre and Jardan. She has exhibited work nationally and internationally.
