Caroline Reed – Glass

Caroline’s work will now be showcased in the ‘New Graduate Review’ in September 2018. Caroline was a winner in the ‘Commended’ area. Caroline was one of only a few students from a College, as most entries were from University graduates.  

When speaking about her course at the College, Caroline said:

“Having completed my Level 2 course at KCC I was keen to attend the Level 3 course. I wanted to build on the techniques I learnt the previous year and have time to find my own particular style – the assignments gave me that opportunity. My tutor was supportive and encouraged me to explore new ways of working (as did my colleagues on the course). The course has helped me build my confidence as an artist. I am now sharing a studio in South West London and I have some of my work in two London exhibitions. I’d never have imagined doing this two years ago.”

Dawn James 1st Prize V&A ‘Inspired By’

Out of nearly 400 national applicants, 3 of KCC’s Design students were selected to exhibit their Ceramics and Glass work as part of the V&A’s ‘Inspired By’ Adult Learners competition and exhibition.

Dawn James was one of 9 Prize-winners on the opening night, winning the overall national Glass prize for her piece based on her ‘Rhythm’ project.

‘I was in such a state of shock when they called my name out that I can’t remember much about getting up on stage to collect my prize. All of my hard work over the last two years has been worth it, I have learnt so much since I started my glass courses at KCC’.

The exhibition continues until 17th June at Morley Gallery. Please see the work of our other selected exhibitors: Rebecca Laister & Yuri Popov too.
