After taking part in the photo shoots I realised what flaws were in my designs and the areas that needed improving. For example, because the pieces are naturally quite 'springy' more welds were needed to ensure the pieces stay in one piece.

I started to look into the id...

Going to the China Halls gave me so much inspiration and really helped with the development of my project. I was able to see how my work reacted in an environment that initially inspired my current work. I soon decided that I wanted to try photographing the pieces in a...

I decided to take my work to 'Spode' to photograph them against the intriguing back drops and surfaces, which relate heavily to my initial inspiration. It has allowed me to demonstrate not only the scale of my work but the many possibilities of displaying them.

I started to look at ways that I could develop the individual pieces into some more powerful and exciting, this is when these fashion sketches came about.

When I made the large scale sample in the previous post, to me at the time that was big. One of the biggest things I had ever made at Uni in fact, as I was always used to working so small. However after making this piece I just didn't feel like it was big enough. I nev...

After having a play around with different techniques to replicate my paper samples in metal, I decided I wanted to make something with a bit more structure. It was around this time that I also decided that I probably won't focus on wearables this semester, I feel at th...
