University of Plymouth
As a emerging design throughout this course I have found my calling in design that being to bring awareness to the issues surrounding gender and the gender gap as well as exploring the constraints of gender not only in design but also within the realms of literature and pleasure. I have mainly focused on ceramics as I feel the material not only represents our connection as human kind to the earth and to one another but also how like clay does during the firing process, these objects can help to shrink the gender gap and bring unity and equality to society along with education about the issues that we tend to turn a blind eye to.
I have taken part in between 10 - 15 taught modules in which I have explored all the materials that the university had to offer in order to find the material that I felt most suited to using to create thought provoking and captivating pieces. I have also taken part and one the 2021 24 hour Ignite festival challenge in which my partner and I designed a fully organic moss wall that would help cut pollution as well as improve mental health with engraved positive quotes that are lit with battery powered LED which help bring light to those areas of the city and the mind that may get forgotten. Along with this I have also worked in collaboration with Free the nipple campaign and Women's Aid in order to create my final module that raises awareness and funds for both charities.
