Hazel Thorn Silversmith: Exquisite Work at New Designers 2014 Exhibition
Next week the New Designers 2014 graduate design exhibition starts in the Business Design Centre in London. Amongst the exhibitors is my step-daughter Hazel who has just completed her M.A. at the Edinburgh College of Art. Hazel is a silversmith and her work and that of other ECA graduates will be on show from June 25-28 on Stands J20 and J21.
I am of course completely biased but I think Hazel's work is wonderful. I find the shapes, patterns and colours fascinating, complex and beautiful and the imagination, dedication and skill needed to produce the works extraordinary. The photos here were taken at the Graduate Show at ECA last month. There is a bigger selection of more formal images on Hazel's website. Hazel also writes a little about her work and explains its connection to 'wild places and natural objects'.
