About

Hannah Shaw, Alice Walton and Janette Lazell have recently been selected for Making It, an initiative by the Suffolk Craft Society which offers recent craft and design graduates the opportunity of support in bridging the gap between education and the market place. Jeweller Hannah Shaw will exhibit a collection of sculptural and wearable pieces made from silver, wood, cork, concrete and cuttlefish. A feature which ties together opposing influences in her finished pieces is the use of mapping grids, keys and scales to organise the relief of the landscape. Alice Walton will be showing a series of ceramic bird cages, glazed in lustrous golds, greeny silvers and pearly whites. Inspired by Victorian birdcages, they stand distorted and frozen, as if something may have escaped. She will also show a group of pocket watches which will sit inside of some of the cages and hang off them. Janette Lazell makes sculptures based upon plant forms made from forged mild steel and stainless steel woven wirecloth. Janette combines her knowledge of plants and grafting with craft techniques in metal work and sewing to ‘grow' her sculptures.
