Project summary:

During the AA2A residency I would like to take the opportunity to work on my research and development. I’m keen to be able to access the vast Universities facilities which will allow me to experiment and I’m open to my work branching off in different tangents. I have different strands within my work, ceramics, painting and illustration to name a few, yet I have not explored surface decoration (especially within ceramics) to a great depth, this is something that I would like to explore further. I’m keen to come to this opportunity anew and to see where it directs me. I’m keen to cross over disciplines too and see what I can merge back into ceramics from an alternative take. I would also like to consider incorporating a digital aspect somehow. Ideally, I would like to complete the process of research and development with enough time to be able to work on a small body of work that I could then potentially exhibit after the AA2A residency has ended.
