Mackinnon and Saunders

So my jewellery has been suffering lately but for good reasons! I am working for puppet/model makers Mackinnon and Saunders where we are working on a live puppet action childrens comedy show for CBBC. I am learning so much and have progressed so far in the past three months, I have been inspired for my own work and the ideas are bubbling to the surface. I am very eager to get back in my studio and start a new project watch this space.

Meanwhile the beautiful gallery Brass Monkeys near Brighton are stocking my work which seems to be going down very well.

New Designers Showcase

Apologies for the bad quality images If only I had taken some good photographs, you can get the general idea I hope. Continuing on from The degree show I took my work to London's Business Design Centre for New Designers 2010. Showcasing the best talent in graduate design the exhibitions standard was staggeringly good,however the Manchester School of Art's stand held its own and received praise from every angle . It has been a fantastic experience, and an opportunity to test my work within the field receiving feedback that can only have a positive impact on my practice.

Degree Show

The Manchester School of Art final year show was over a month ago now. So much has happened in such a short space of time, and only now have I had the time to update my blog and contemplate all the fantastic opportunities I have had. A big thank you to all who came and showed so much enthusiasm for my work.
