Contemporary Crafts Degree Show 17th June 2011

Hoooray for the last stage of my degree, and now its all over! What an amazing and emotional journey this has been for the last of the Contemporary Crafters.
The degree show was a success and had a few more people than expected (we ran out of alcohol!) including old tutors Ray Saddington, Dave Brodie and Pete Chatwin, it was really nice to catch up :)

Check out some images of my work in the degree show:

 Table display of some of the work.

 Necklace piece (wire, felt and buttons)

 My hanging mobile piece.

I am so pleased with my final show, it has been an incredible journey and this is only the beginning.......best get making more!

The degree show is on until Wednesday and i would highly recommend a visit.

Final Pieces: Assessment Show

So everything is complete and my work is set up to be assessed. It has been a long journey but I am so pleased with what I have produced.

 My final work displayed for assessment including samples, sketchbooks, visual and contextual research.

The hanging of wire drawings made from nickle and binding wire and wrapped thread.

 The thread wrapped wire adds a subtle colour and feminine touch to the wire.

 I included my life drawings in the wire pieces which add a nice detail when combined with the floral patterns.

 The felt torso piece and wire train. I included my life drawings in with the wire. I love how ghost like the felt is and the wire coming off the torso excentuates the concept of celebrating and decorating the female form.

Some pieces have been selected to be in the MMU Degree Show on display at Chatham Building, All Saints Campus, MMU, Manchester from the 18th-22nd June so feel free to pop in and have a look.
