Following a sell-out event in 2015, ARTS THREAD is again working with Handmade in Britain, with a curated space within the show for recent graduates. Shown above is Nicola Cliffe, alumna Textiles MA Chelsea College of Art at last night's Private View with her Achillea collection. 'Hand printed in the Lincolnshire town of Stamford, Madder Cutch & Co's beautifully designed fabrics are the result of a union between traditional screen-printing methods and sustainably sourced plant dyes and pigments.'
ARTS THREAD is proud to be a media partner with Traces for the 3rd year running. Traces are now developing the next show to be launched this December in partnership with the National Trust’s Fenton House in Hampstead, and are looking for the most exciting new Artists and Designer/Makers to exhibit their work at this high profile 1-month event to run over the Christmas period - December 01-23 2016.
We would like a selection of work that has a Contemporary Georgian feel and we are particularly interested in ceramic and metal tableware, kitchenware, and glassware although we have the facilities to accommodate a wide variety of other homewares too.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: Next THURSDAY October 13 2016 MIDNIGHT
Shown above is a piece from the series Hi-res & Lo-res vessels by Matt Davis, a 2016 graduate from University of Brighton 3D Design & Craft MDes. Matt works with ceramics & 3D printing to create physical pixels. His intention is to explore ideas of digital / physical hyperreality by creating binary objects; the methods employ the degenerate use of high technology to produce lo-tech generative forms. This work is slip cast in bone china, black porcelain & gilded in 23.5 carat gold leaf.
Shown above is an image from a project entitled Vase Choice by Marcel Krummenacher, a 2016 graduate from Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle in MA Product Design & Applied Art. 'An analogue contorted body forms the base of the vase and is handcrafted in a slipcast process. Furthermore a digitally generated attachment is added to this body, printed in a ceramic powder process called z-corp. Through the option to change the diameter of the vase’s mouth, the vase’s spectrum of application is extended – be it to hold an opulent bunch of tulips or some field flowers.
