A link to the crowd funding page for my class – 4th year 3DD at Grays school of art. We are trying to raise funds to aid the payment of our stand at London New Designers 2013 at the London Business centre. Visit the page and have a look at our video and if you feel like being generous donate some pennies, we’d all be very grateful! 🙂
This is a piece of work that I made in second year at Art School. It was made in response to a live project with the Provest Skene House Museum in Aberdeen. Inspired by the toys in the victorian nursery in the house and I created this little porcelain dress. It’s meant to represent the dolls and toys and the memories of the children who played with them and how although toys and dolls become old, tatty and forgotten about, our childhood memories will stay with us for a lifetime.
The reason this piece came out the wood work was because I came across an appeal for donated art works from a project called eightbyeight. In April they have an exhibition in Inverness with the theme “ChildHood Explored” which is to raise funds for the Camille Appeal supporting children recovering from brain tumors. I thought the dress I had made fitted with the theme and thought I’d rather see it going to a such a good cause. Here’s hoping they succeed and gain lots of funds for the kids!
Have a look at their website and see all their hard work.
