Heathland Artworks

This week, I went along to Farnham Heath; an RSPB nature reserve where a selection of artwork is currently on display - including the work of a few of my peers from uni! The artwork trail has been funded by Surrey Hills Arts, and you can find out all about it on their website. The... Continue Reading →

‘Leach Pottery: The Sound Of It’

This weekend, I took some time to visit the Crafts Study Centre, and look at my friend's exhibition 'Leach Pottery: The Sound Of It'. Loucia Manopoulou is a current MRes student of the university and I have worked with her previously at the New Ashgate Gallery. As part of her final examination, she must curate...

A Big Thankyou

I just wanted to write a quick blog post to say a big thank-you to everyone who came along to my graduation show Private View, and also to all those who have supported me through-out this degree. It has been the most amazing experience and I can't believe it's over! Here are a few images... Continue Reading →

Graduation Show Prep

This week, we've been busy getting things ready for the graduation show. As a class, we have to come together to curate our exhibition space as a team, to create the best looking show we can. The tutors have been so supportive in this process, helping us to paint the space, put up temporary walls... Continue Reading →

As our final ever university deadline creeps us on me, I have felt extremely panicked... Continue Reading →

The silver for these two pieces was funded by The Goldsmith's Centre. If you would like to know... Continue Reading →

Instax Polaroid Photographs

As part of documenting the environment that I am working with, I have been taking Polaroid photographs on my Fujifilm Instax camera. I love working with photography, because it allows me to capture something so fleeting; freezing a moment in time. It is a much faster way of preserving my observations of a space than...

The Final Foundry Casting

This month was the University's final organised bronze foundry pour until the end of term - which meant I had to get all my final pieces of bark sprued up and prepped for the pour if I wanted them to be used for my big sculpture! I probably had enough pieces already cast in bronze... Continue Reading →
