Made By Hand 2016/Subject Research Level 6

For the past two years since joining Maker ive visited and helped with setting up in any way I can with Sarah James and Made By Hand. Made by hand without doubt is no easy event to pull of but is a fantastic day visit if ever around Cardiff at the end of October. Made…

Glass vessels

Due to friction in the material or something of that sorts in the bonding process large bubble holes appeared in both of the bowl sheet pieces I made ¬†Due to time restrictions this would have to be an acceptable factor to work around and find ways to solve this in the future. next in order…

Make Your Mark

For the first time in awhile a problem has come up that isn’t a fault from me personally but unfortunately does affect me. For my Make Your Mark piece I wanted to create something that I could demonstrate my skills by hand with and also translate skill digitally. For this project the digital aspect I…

Clay moulds (Make Your Mark)

Following on from the moulds I made yesterday embedding leaves in clay I spoke to Martin regarding the next stage of the development of this outcome with the intention of making a bowl vessel shape. He was quite pleased about the quality of the pieces shown and recommended I get them fired as soon as…

Make Your Mark Tutorial rundown

Yesterday I had a talk with pip regarding the progress made with Make Your Mark ideas and outcomes. I briefly showed some of the ideas I had in rough form and the artists these ideas are influenced on and how these when coming to critique can link to one and other and why this relates…

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.

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…

Lamp Influences Two

Another influence at Made by hand was artist Sue Hanna The major idea that came from seeing sue’s work was the transferring of her ideas and then adding my own. Despite Sue’s work being made entirely in Ceramics and finished using ceramic processes when suitable, the ring like objects on the outside are placed on…
