Graduate Showcase at The Bevere Gallery

I will be exhibiting at the Bevere Gallery from the 7th January 2017 with my HumanWare collection. 

The Gallery represents some exciting and talented ceramicists and I am honoured to be showing alongside them.

The exhibition stemmed from a conversation at New Designers 2016- I am excited for more such conversations in the coming year!

RIBA

Once a week I work as a Studio Assistant at the Royal Institute of British Architects for the current Giles Round exhibition, We live in the Office. I spend a nice afternoon listening to Radio 6music and painting graphic prints designed by Giles onto Bisque fired ceramics. The prints are derived from the facades of buildings around the world, from Centrepoint to a palace at Knossos.

Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair

I was thrilled to be asked to take part in the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Manchester for the Great Northern Graduates Award. Lucy Harvey, the curator saw my work at New Designers. Each exhibitor there had a playful and highly skilled approach to their practice, from 'pixelated' ceramic vases by Ceramicsx who plays with the idea of 2D/ 3D- handmade/digital to Rob Anderson who's metal sake set showed of the hours that went into them and the beauty of metal as a material. 

 

I came back from Manchester feeling inspired to focus in on the details of my work. I have visions to really make the depth of surface as intricate as possible, the colours as intense as possible. I want for the viewer to be able to keep looking at the peices and discover something new each time. I would love them to grow to new heights or for the communities to turn to crowds who inhabit every part of the city. 

Plinth @ Thurloe Place, South Kensington

I met Chloe from Plinth on the final day of my graduate show, she spoke to me about the concept for this pop-up at Thurloe place, based around a living meadow which was to be installed by artist Jacques Nimki.

I spoke about my peices being inspired by urban green, areas of wilderness within the urban landscape and we agreed that my work would sit well there. 

The experience with Plinth was very refreshing as I exhibited among extremely varying styles and disciplines. To exhibit alongside photographers, videographers and those who stray away from the 'craft' field was refreshing and encouraged me to think of myself in relation to those peices and ways in which we link conceptually,
