Pewter Project from 2011

As I was just on the previous post explaining about my exhibition opportunity together with pewterer Ella McIntosh, I though of my old project during the second year studies in Camberwell College of Arts. 
It was all about Pewter. I ended up sand casting the malleable metal. As a result I produced three little cups, and the inspiration came from broken domestic china. Here's a little description of the Folly:

When an object brakes, it is often rejected or ignored. Folly pewter bowls celebrates the deliberate defects, cracks on its surface, elevating what might normally be perceived as a negative attribute, into something beautiful. 

Exhibiting at Manchester Craft and Design Centre

I am taking a part on an recent graduate exhibition in Manchester starting on the 23rd of March in Manchester Craft and Design Centre. The centre has studios of 35 artists, designers and craftspeople, who are producing and selling their work for the public. 
I am going to be exhibiting my Streamline Collection in Studio 20a, This Is Pewter, that belongs to Ella McIntosh. She wanted to showcase my work on the window of her studio, along with her lovely pewter work. It'll be captivating contrast between Pewter and Copper, Great! I thought this is a good opportunity to promote my work and do some valuable networking, in Manchester for change! 
The centre is running a main exhibition Every Step: The Design Process of Joseph Hartley in the main area. I saw his award winning Makery collection at the New Designers 2012 show. I am looking forward to see what he's been up to.
So if anyone is around in Manchester, please do come to say hello to Ella and me and check out the Craft and Design Centre's wonderful handmade products.
