Alan Phillips has been a designer maker and lecturer for the last thirty years. His extensive investigation of concepts, processes, materials and aesthetics have driven his practice and created exciting contemporary jewellery and both functional and non-functional product design.
Following a very successful Residency at Liverpool Hope University in 2012 on the AA2A (Artists Access to Art Colleges) Scheme the University is pleased to present a Retrospective of Alan’s work within its Capstone Gallery.
The AA2A project provides placements for visual artists and designer makers in Higher and Further Education institutions across England. In 2011/2012, AA2A schemes will run in 32 institutions, providing 128 placements nationally. In the last 12 years, over 1,200 participants have had the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project, using workshops and supporting facilities in participating fine art and design departments.
