WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
Our impact on the environment has never been a more important topic.
Sustainability has become a major theme seen in graduate work over the last few years, as demonstrated in this collection by Ellie Perry's project 'SAND', a research experiment into the ways in which industrial waste can be used in ceramic glazes to encourage a more sustainable practice (begun during her BA in Product and Furniture Design at Kingston School of Art from which she has just graduated with first class honours).
Craft has a wonderful opportunity to lead the way in this enhanced thinking about our world, with such an importance on material, and the first groups of pieces in the following collection demonstrate where this thought could lead with a focus on sustainable thinking.
The collection then leads us through to a celebration of local materials, an appreciation for what's around us
and the innovation in going back to basics.
"We minimise waste when creating work by reutilising each of our component parts. Our materials are carefully considered - Jesmonite is a water-based composite of gypsum and resin. As it is water-based, not solvent-based, it is widely recognised as eco-friendly. We re-use corrugated cardboard packaging which is recyclable and compostable."
"We enjoy working with everyday materials, with an unexpected fusion, to create a new context."
