The artists in residence of 2009/10 at UCA Farnham were the first to organise a group exhibition for all artists in residence across the disciplines of Ceramics, Glass, Fine Art, Jewellery, Photography and Textiles. After many months of organising the exhibition finally came together. Each artist had space in the James Hockey Gallery for the display of final pieces and space in the Foyer gallery for work-in-progress, maquettes, samples and sketchbooks. A large screen in the Foyer gallery displayed a looped presentation.

The exhibition explored the way in which the artist’s work, make and think, by allowing the audience a sneak preview of their practice. With a streamed projection of photography documenting their making processes, the artists are able to answer the question of how these works are made and show the thought processes involved in making. The intention was for the viewer to be able to see what the maker sees from beginning to end.

I showcased both my latest collections of brooches called Best-before, a contemporary take on the Memento Mori jewellery of the past, and Push-on.
