Delft Cane with Cara Jane

In this workshop, students created several Delft style cane components using Skinner Blends to add detail and shading. Students were shown how to combine the components to make 3 different canes, but the components could also be used individually. Students learned how to combine cane slices into a smooth sheet of veneer which could be used to create jewellery and other decorative objects and also to apply cane slices to beads. Plenty of tips were shared throughout the workshop!

Illumination Lines Pendant with Maria Alexandrou

The Illumination Lines Pendant was inspired from manuscripts dating back to the Middle Ages and the shiny effect Middle Eastern buildings had at that time. The pendant’s design is essentially a rectangular hollow bead, with two beads, hanging off a long chain. The bead’s decoration planning begins after moulding and structuring the translucent clay.
