As an alternative to the dissertation route, I picked to do the live trading option which has involved setting up a pop up shop with a team of final year Decorative Arts students. All work is hand made using a range of materials and processes.

I was having problems with my small saucers warping in the kiln, so I came up with a new design where the saucers lay flat with an extra inside rim for added decoration.These base my final collection of saucers. They remind me of childrens tea sets with their antique and ornate feel. The lustre has had a delightful and pleasing effect!
