Amelia’s Magazine | New Designers 2011 Part One: Ceramics and Glass Graduate Show Review

New Designers review 2011-Tim Rawlinson
Glassware by Tim Rawlinson.

Ceramics and Glass took up most of the upper balcony at New Designers part one, pill curling against the railings in small exhibition spaces that brought home to me just how important it is to put together a really great eye catching main graduate exhibition: the Royal College of Art‘s small space did not show off work to anything like the standard that was seen at their own show and I would have easily passed by some of their most compelling student’s work if this was all I had seen. Luckily I did see Ceramics and Glass in situ at the RCA – read a full review of their show here.
