With the final show in mind they have been set the task to produce a range of samples with some lovely results. This stage is their ‘resolution of practise’. The above image shows a mixed media piece by Jade Stimpson (third year Jewellery Design). She has claw set patinated metal along side drift wood.
Rachael Harman is a second year Contemporary Design Crafts student who has been researching the technique of ‘Repousse’. Using a bowl of pitch and specialist tools she has now moved on to silver with really lovely results.
Melissa Morgan (third year Jewellery Design) has been enamelling onto copper and using white enamel and lead pencil which produces a scraffigo effect. Mel has spent a lot of time working with enamels and as a result her samples are some of the best I have seen in the workshop.
Nicki Lille (third year Contemporary Design Crafts). Her samples are finished pieces in themselves! They are just stunning. Her research and inspiration comes from unusual architecture in particular agricultural buildings. The above image is a brooch sample using square brass tube and coloured copper wire.
