Before I begin the next stage in my making career in the next week or two, here is what I've been up to since completing my final Degree show project...
First I exhibited my final collection at De Montfort's Art & Design Show alongside many other talented Design Craft makers, all working in a variety of materials including glass, metal, textiles, paper & ceramics.
Here are some of us at the Private view, celebrating getting through all the stress & late nights of making!
For my set up I focused on using a science theme to present my work, incorporating test tubes, glass jars & even this dead mouse (below) we unearthed while moving plinths!
Thank you to everyone who came & visited our show - If you didn't get a chance to take a look at my Facebook page for more photos or read the lovely Karina's review of the show here.
Next it was on to New Designers, a showcase of Design graduates from across the country at the Business Design Centre in Islington. It was a fantastic week for everyone, with lots of sales, opportunities and exhibiting offers!
It was also a brilliant place to look for inspiration - look out for a future blog post on my favourite new graduates I saw there.
And last but not least in a busy few months was Graduation day!
Soon I will be starting back at University as one of five Design Crafts Artists in Residence, so look out for some new work coming up!
