About me


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!
