Made in Roath Experience 2016

Throughout my two and 1/3¬†years of study at Cardiff Met ive heard and been meaning to look into and explore the Made In Roath scene having done Made By Hand for the last two years and potentially this year as well but haven’t had the time to be able to do it. Made In Roath…

BAMS Medal

Speaking to Dallas the foundry technician today I discussed the plan of action for the remaining time left before exhibition.Dallas suggested that I put wire around the shape of the vessel covering my medal to give extra support during the burn out and pour part of the process, this is a safeguard due to the…

Make your Mark project Review

With time running short ive decided to create 2 series of four objects, one being a series of four bowl vase outcomes and the other being vessels for light for tables and the possibility of being attached to the wall. This is as far as i have got but will be looking into further exploration.

Delight in Light

Delight in Light has proved to be quite a problem and ive managed to get a marquette and prototype and rough materials together and a vague idea of what to have on the design sheets but I need to concentrate to get this finished with a working prototype for exhibition. I also hope to have…

Faking IT Project Review

Faking IT ended up having the highest mark quality so far in two years of study with an overall 2:1 that very nearly was a 1st. The set had great feedback on the look and the characters, and ended up being requested for display in the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay as shown For…

The Medal Expectation review project

The original medal didn’t come out as good as I had hoped and unfortunately wasn’t able to be put forward for the BAMS competition of 2016 but the roughly quality wise version made it in to Craft in the Bay and was one of the few that were selected to go on the official page…

Medal in The Bay

After setting up in the Bay For Touch Trust I popped over to Craft in the Bay to see the display for the medals. Most of Maker knows that I was really upset about the finalised piece and the fact that the ceramic shell was still stuck in after several sandblasts but it was reasonably…

Peach in the Millennium Centre

From the 30th of March to the 1st of April myself, Will, Shannen and Adele’s set for James and the Giant Peach was exhibited in the Wales Millennium Centre. The set was part of the display for a charity by the name of Touch Trust for their performance via musical interaction of the film James…

Ideas for Make Your Mark

The Maker marketspace is expanding across the UK and abroad so finding your feet and where you sit on the market isn’t the easiest of tasks and once that hurdle is passed how do you sell yourself to potential buyers and potential employees now that’s the difficult Part. At the moment I have mind mapped…

What to make

For the make your mark project ive been asked along with visual data in the form of blog and sketchwork as examples to produce a series of outcomes that relate to my interests and individualities in the making process. At this stage im pretty sure im not the only one that is struggling to figure…

Medal work so far

The medal is nearly done in most respects and requires a few hours tlc for the deadline. I’m debating putting it in for the exhibition in Craft in the Bay without any colour in the knowledge that I will most likely melt it down if possible to redo and based on recent events the bronze…

Make your Mark progress

Focusing on this project im not really sure where to begin so looking over the brief will hopefully focus me in the key areas needed. As a Maker making objects that fit a overall purpose but have a aesthetic that makes you want to buy them for visual display purposes is an end goal. Thing…
