EMILY'S SENSORY CERAMICS AT THE 'CREO' NOTTINGHAM DEGREE SHOW 2014
The 2014 Nottingham University Summer Degree Show was packed with innovative ideas from this year's crop of young artists and creatives, including 'Creo,' the final-year display of the decorative arts students.
Of most interest to us was the work of daughter Emily Stapleton-Jefferis, whose ceramics were a wonder to behold, with minute attention to detail and plenty of the 'ooh-aah' factor, known in the auto-design business as 'surprise and delight' where something has a hidden extra, above and beyond its obvious use.
Emily's works - known unofficially at The English Eye as 'sensory ceramics' are appropriately named. They surprise and delight visitors (as you'll find out in the short video) with their intimate focus on our senses, whether it's sight, sound, touch, feel, and even taste.
UPDATE Her work gained Emily a First Degree. Quite right too, and we're looking forward to seeing more shows in times to come.
