‘New Makers’ will celebrate the work of the UK’s most exciting recent graduates
and newly emerging designer makers, chosen for their innovative design qualities and making skills.
Featuring jewellery by Liverpool based maker Hayley Grafflin, who recently graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Jewellery & Metalwork from Sheffield Hallam University. She takes inspiration from the urban environment, with her intuitive flowing forms of weathered surfaces, Carolyn Kinnaird graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Design & Applied Arts from Edinburgh College of Art. Inspired by her travels through countries such as Peru, Morocco and Vietnam, she was captured by the tribal jewellery and their traditional tribal tattooing styles, and award winning jeweller Ella Fearon-Low a graduate from Morley College London, who works with strong shapes and diverse materials to create playful sophisticated contemporary jewellery that references historical forms.
Also on show are ceramics by Verity Howard who graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in 3D Design from Manchester School of Art. Verity responds to subjects surrounding people, history and places. By creating slab built works she captures feelings, moods, atmospheres and a sense of place, Natalie Moon a recent BA (Hons) graduate in 3D design from Manchester School of Art is influenced by traditional Japanese Shibumi principles of merging the old with the new and has redesigned the traditional plate by focusing on symmetry, balance and simplicity, and Melissa Camm who recently graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Textiles & Surface Design from The University of Bolton. She enjoys experimenting with mark making and creating textures, which she then takes into CAD and uses them to create her designs.
Also exhibiting is glassmaker Angie Packer a recent BA (Hons) graduate in Design & Craft from De Montfort University Leicester. Angie’s work is instinctive and often her ideas only emerge as she works; experimentation and freedom to explore are key to her practice.
Finally, Emilia Palma Cientanni a recent BA (Hons) graduate of Contemporary Design Crafts from Hereford College of Arts takes her inspiration from water, waves and wind, to create her innovative shelving from a range of different wood variations and acrylic felt.
