BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design

Jade Alana Ashton

Imagine yourself in a museum of the future where specimens of flora, fauna, botany, are frozen in time...

All bees have died...

No flowers... No pollen... No bees...

Text and phrases, particularly from children’s literature, is often a starting point for my work. However, my concerns for the environment, and its flora and fauna, are also themes I explore further; my work tells its own story, but starts from a line or two from another author’s narrative. This usually results in an installation, containing hand-built porcelain and mixed media pieces. Furthermore I deliver art workshops for schools, art galleries, and museums.
