Jerwood Contemporary Makers visit

So, now the prize is all the materials in one competition. I was a bit disappointed that there were only 7 exhibitors as I feel there is so much more going on in contemporary 'craft' (eukkk hate that word!) than was shown.

My favourite pieces by far were by Committee product design - considering the question of 'what is worth making in the consumer age when we already have (and waste) so much?' and they answer that by making projects out of discarded objects. Very inspiring selection.

Also the work by Geoffrey Mann was interesting, 3d sculptures of 'solid air' a pigeon's flight and a moth attracted to a light, I like the concept but I'm not sure about the final works.
