Field Formative Feedback With Ingrid

During my formative assessment for field, both Ingrid and Pip were concerned and most likely the feedback would reflect this that there was some great work but the progress of moving forward with this work isn’t visible as it should be at this stage. Both liked the work but wanted the best possible result as…

Time Constraints

In previous posts the concern and tutorials have highlighted that progress is being seen and the results are promising but unfortunately things are reaching a point of there is nothing guaranteed that is going right and forcing the problem to go further and further into the red and marking will definitely pick up on this….

Glass vs Resin

Throughout the making of my pieces for the past few weeks there has been a constant battle of one process succeeding but then the next process doesn’t and undoes the good work done. So far I have made to be honest I don’t even know how many pieces in glass but in my formative assessment…

Editing and picking a logo

Every artist like every person needs a representation or a visual form that links what you do to the audience that what you stand for can relate to such as your digital and physical presence in the world. One important branding for an artist identity is a logo, For some, this is simple initials with…

Bookbinding

Having collected the book I made for the bookbinding workshop I was really happy with the results. Having done this workshop I am interested in transforming my sketchbooks and degree show information books into books I have physically made myself to add that extra value to the pieces. Next term I hope to revisit this…

Laura Thomas Textile Artist

  During my formative assessment with Ingrid and Pip when the trapping frit between glass idea didn’t work Ingrid mentioned the use of resin and in particular for research purposes the work of Laura Thomas an artist that knows Ingrid and ironically is one of the first artists I believe I have spoken to at…

Resin not Glass

From my formative assessment with Pip and Ingrid yesterday I have begun looking into the use of replacing the glass sheets of my pieces with resin. At this late stage of development working with a material that I have interest in but never used before in any way is running the risk of ruining work…

March 20th deadline

Despite a few problems the race is on to complete the pieces for the march 20th deadline. So far the light and bowl pieces have had problems but have been moving forward and altering as they go. My aim for the deadline is to have one of the light pieces completed and bowl pieces to…

Janet Kelman

In my exhibition module research whilst looking in the library for glass books, I stumbled across the work of Janet Kelman. Janet Kelman pictured below education is in chemistry but has had a passion and work ethos for glass that has lasted for over 40 years. In particular, due to the limitations of equipment, we…
