All done!!!

So I've now completely finished my degree in Design Crafts (and graduated!! woooo!!!). So thought I would put a few pictures up of my degree show and a few pictures of some of my pieces and a bit about them!!!

Degree show display- set up for marking

Display draws attached to the wall in different ways to add to a sense of curiosity.

Walsall Leather Museum

An old workshop in the leather museum, I love the old boxes and stained, well used work tops and draws. Its littered with interesting things, I used this as inspiration for the display of my pieces at the degree show.

And then the pieces......

Bird in silver harness, This Bird was given to me by a friend who found it in her boyfriends garden. It was completely intact and looks quite peaceful. The bird is freeze-dried.

Silver Monkey Skull, I found the actual skull in Tanzania on a beach, partly eaten by dogs!

Small mouse on suede bed, encased in silver locket,My favourite final piece in the degree show, this little mouses body was found in my boyfriends bathroom. It looked very peaceful and likely it had a small heart attack. It seemed a shame for the mouse to end up on some rubbish pile so I had it freeze dried and designed a case that would both protect it (in the same way a museum artefact may be preserved) and to create a small reliquary for the mouse.

Another final piece in the degree show. This crab I found on a beach in Swansea. There was a small cluster of a few whole crabs, amongst the flotsam, as if some one had placed them there very carefully.
