Well - I'm very pleased to find that I've been given a First for my degree! All that hard work and stress was worth it. 
I'm now going to take a break from all things design related over the summer and take the opportunity to refresh myself, and then start to plan the next step in September.

A busy and exciting week at New Designers at the Business Design Centre, Islington. Thanks to everyone who came to see us at our College stand, and for the positive and encouraging feedback about my work.

After a few hectic weeks all the work is finally finished and now the degree show is up and running. Congratulations to all my fellow students for finishing the course. 

This is my display area with some of my aprons, tea towels, tablecloths, runner and crockery.

Back at College again for the last few weeks of the course and busy in the print room screenprinting some tea towels.
Here's a couple of completed aprons.

I've just spent a few days in New York, singing with my local choir at an event at the Carnegie Hall. Not great timing considering how near we are to the end of the course, but it was too good an opportunity to pass up.
Between rehearsals I managed to get to the Chrysler Building and the Rockefeller building. I love Art Deco and took some photos of some of the architectural details.

And here are the finished items. I'm pleased with the way they've turned out.

Just spent an afternoon applying decals to crockery to go with a couple of my collections. It was a very enjoyable process and I was completely absorbed in it. The transfer paper is blue until it is fired, then it becomes clear, but in fact I like the blue blocks, and if I was doing it again I would have included some blocks of colour in the designs. 
The paper comes from Fotoceramics - send them your designs and they will print them off for you.
