And for my textiles/jewellery collaboration i have stumbled across a golden idea, through exploring other materials, of melting bottle plastics in a certain way, that they curl and twist in unexpected ways and give the most amazing sculptural forms! Now, i am mixing these forms with silver (and possibly other materials) and beginning to embark on the design process journey. Soon i will have little gemstones of work that scream class and high-end market, yet are really only made out of recycled bottle plastic! Well i hope, i shall update you on that one soon.

Here is a before and after shot of my first attempt at a final piece for my Ceramics brief!
My springboard for inspiration in this brief was 'layers' and i chose to focus on natural layers, found on the beach, and amongst cliffsides and rocks.
Getting used to working in clay is DIFFICULT! It is totally different to any other medium i have ever used, but i sure am eager to learn more and really get to grips with it!
I guess this blog is to not only showcase my work, but also document tips and techniques, and generally discuss all things Applied Artsy!
