Residency at the Clay Studio, Philadelphia, 2007
During the two month residency I gathered visual and written material from the city and surrounding region, to feed into experimental work based on the souvenir. The work made there was part of my M.Phil research. I explored various forms, images and used photographs to create decals.
It formed a starting point for a large body of work on return that explored broad themes of ‘familiar/unfamiliar’ and the displacement and heightened state of travel. .
Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee – Craft Bursary Project 2010-2011
This project enabled me to spend time researching, documenting and developing experimental pieces at the college. It was my first project accessing the D’Arcy Thompson Museum at the University, and subsequently fed into numerous other creative work.
