Connections Project

Drawings and samples for felted lighting idea. This project was based on brain cavities of different animals. I dissected and boiled a pig's head for research – wouldn't recommend it in a student flat.

Structure & Surface Worksheet

Textile Samples and Mono prints based on Sycamore seeds

Structure & Surface Necklace

This necklace is based on some continuous line drawings of conkers, that I did as part of the Structure & Surface project. I remade the shapes in copper, pressed, and heated them for different colours. It's quite a difficult piece to wear because of it's size, but I've worn it a couple of times and it hasn't broken yet so I'm quite pleased.

Glass bubble that only it's mother could love

I had my Glass Blowing induction a couple of weeks ago, and everyone in my class got to blow glass bubbles as the first exercise. Once it was annealed we were then let loose on the grinders and cutters etc. for decorating. I quenched mine for cracks and sandblasted the inside. The rim needs polishing and a base ground into it yet, but I'm unsure when I can get that done. Its a bit ugly at the moment but it doesn't matter, I'll love it forever!!
