Metaform - Entrance Display

Well, it's Friday and I'm home in Bearwood, Birmingham, my new home. I suppose I should feel a bit unsettled, maybe even a bit down, but I don't. From the moment I turned up at the School of Jewellery on Monday to wishing my new colleagues goodnight at 5pm and cycling home, it has been a fantastic week of developing courses, staff development, meeting my colleagues and bringing all my teaching materials in line with Birmingham City University, ready for the onslaught of students a week on Monday week.

Unfortunately, I've not had much to report on this front, given that I've been so busy that I've not had a chance to take any photographs, annoying given that I keep spotting things I want to photograph on my rides to and from work.This week saw the opening of the graduate show for the MA Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products, "Metaform", an exciting and diverse show which shows a more exploratory approach to jewellery than would perhaps be seen on other courses and featuring vessels made from rice grains, wearable books, lace made of compressed paper pulp and pieces which are designed to revolt!

I present a selection here with all of the photographs being on my flickr stream. For more information, see the Metaform website.

Thank you so much for these images and for your Flickr feed. It's as close as I can get to being there.

I've posted Jivan's article on Twitter, too. It is great to be able to read about the work.

As always: Thank you Dauvit for the images. They are a great complement to the crafthaus online exhibition of the work which Jivan and the students put up on crafthaus every year. Here's the link to the online exhibition you are describing:

I will place a link to your blog and photos in the exhibition as well!
