My name is Hazel MacLennan, I'm a 4th year design student studying at Gray's School of Art in the Scottish city of Aberdeen. I feel that as a designer and as an artist I have a responsibility to make people aware of global environmental issues. I want to use the platform I have to inform other on how we can tackle and join together to combat these issues. My material focuses are mainly within the fields of ceramics and glass. Using a number of processes. What better way to start than through thoughtful design? Currently I am experimenting lots with glass fusing, drop forming, slip casting and mold making. What better way to start than through thoughtful design? I try to be always aware of the environment within my creative practices. Therefore I try to be careful with the amount of wastage I produce and the electricity I use. I am currently working towards the end of my degree so watch this space for some interesting pieces to come!
Whilst completing my third year at Gray’s School of Art I was a part time ceramic workshop assistant. This was a great opportunity to learn how the basic day to day running of a workshop. - Learnt how to use the clay-pugging machine to produce fresh clay. - Responsible for refilling the porcelain vat and adding appropriate chemicals. - Cleaning and maintaining all necessary equipment. - Cleaning and helping with general upkeep of workshop. - Assisting students with projects when possible.
I was lucky enough to be part of Modern Heritage Craft scheme in Dumfries and Galloway. This opportunity opened up doors for me and I learnt a great deal which I have been applying to my final year project. Learnt how to create pattern, depth and layer with vibrant glass powders. - How to cut glass and use powders safely. - Technical knowledge on how to build basic glass blanks. - Kiln firing processes and temperatures. - How to programme the kiln with various programmes.
