Meet the ARTS THREAD members who have been chosen for ARTS THREAD Emerging Talents at Handmade at Kew, taking place from today October 06 until this Sunday October 09 2016 at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

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 and VeryFirstTo.com have launched a new initiative - Emerging Talent, a special section on the VeryFirstTo.com website - where no item stays on the site beyond 59 days from release. 

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.

Check out & buy from the ARTS THRAD members on show at Emerging Talent on VeryFirstTo.com

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.
