A contemporary jewellery designer with a wealth of experience within the education sector. Proficient leader and project manager with a wide range of practical and leadership skills.
My degree is in Applied Arts; I have specialised in silver smithing and ceramics, although I am proficient in a number of materials and processes. I explore the context of value, sentimentality and nostalgia. I have worked in education for the past eight years, teaching Art and Design Technology. I have left the profession having completed a qualification in Leadership. I have worked with the Design Museum Learning team for a number of years to support the Design Ventura Project having won the award of Design Museum Teacher of the Year. I am working freelance for the museum delivering schools workshops to support Design Ventura.
My degree encompassed a wide range of materials and processes: Textiles, plastics, resins, wood, metal and ceramics. I specialised in jewellery and ceramics to create ranges of sentimental contemporary jewellery that explore the value of memory and possessions through nostalgia and irreplaceable objects. Exploring the value of relationships and family I create wearable objects that provoke the wearer and the audience to contemplate how sentimental value can be perceived through personal ideals.
Judges’ comments: The Teacher of the Year Award aims to celebrate the amazing work of practitioners who innovate through design education to make Design Ventura a success for their schools. This year’s winner led a dynamic project involving 120 students, industry experts, and colleagues from other subjects including English, History, ICT and Geography. This project showed the relevancy of design and enterprise across the school curriculum. Thank you Claire!
