Today I can confirm that I am have been invited to design the Medal for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Been a hard secret to keep over past few days!
This weekend (Saturday) I will be down in Brighton giving a short artists talk among other artists and designers in this fantastic exhibition. Please contact Brighton and Hove Museum to book ticket.
I have just returned from Beijing where I was awarded a Silver Prize for my work Clyde Built. It will be on show in this exhibition till December. I was very Lucky to exhibit and talk next to some fantastic metalworkers from around the world. And even found my picture of my mug next to an old friend and jeweller Marta Mattsson.
The two outputs below I think have been put forward the REF 2014. Lats month I also gave a talk regarding my work to the Research Excellence Showcase Day. The flyer for the day featured my work Case Study No.1 in the latent potential in objects (biro).
Want to know more about how and why I make my work have a look through my research Portfolios created for the 2014 REF.
Research Portfolio #1 is on the technical aspects of making my work,
