MADE Wolverhampton is a group of BA Applied Arts and MA Design & Applied Arts students from the University of Wolverhampton, exhibiting at New Designers in London this June.
New Designers is an exciting opportunity to launch their careers. As the leading graduate design fair in an international venue it provides opportunities to meet industry proffessional's gaining advice, commissions and employment. With over 15,000 visitors from trades and the public, work is show cased to a wide audience, helping launch their work into the creative industries.
Being a self-funded project they have over £5000 to fund raise; any differences will have to be covered by the group. These necessary funds will cover the making of the exhibition space, transportation costs, accommodation and promotion.
This is a fantastic project to be a part of and help kick start graduate careers! Your donations will go a long way towards promoting their talent and give them the opportunity to show case their work in an international venue.
MADE Wolverhampton includes a diverse collection of work across glass and ceramic mediums:
Casabi Designs, run by Chloe Smith offers a variety of high quality handmade items including porcelain light diffusers, porcelain bowls, fused glass bowls, and jewellery.
Mabel Lowman takes inspiration from the world around her, in particular the juxtaposition between natural and manmade, geometric and organic, and investigates how these opposites can be brought together, through a series of multi-disciplinary pieces.
Alfie Smith is a designer/maker focussing on the use of new technologies within craft, currently using Pâte de Verre to demonstrate how new technologies including 3D printing can be beneficial to traditional craftsmen instead of replacing them.
Amie Sara Babu is a conceptual artist focusing on childhood memories using photographs. She communicates personal emotions through ceramics and conveys this through vessels as a containment of something tangible or non-tangible.
Emma Price looks at the way natural surfaces change with the passing of time. She expresses this in porcelain using different glazes to create ageing surfaces which map the alterations in surfaces caused by the elements.
Naomi Jacques combines Kiln formed glass processes and photography as she expresses strengths and vulnerabilities seen through life, presently she is exploring Motherhood. She thrives on pushing the boundaries of conventional glass processes and forms.
Thankyou for your kind donations to this great project!
