Second-year students from our BA (Hons) 3D Design Crafts programme will be exhibiting large-scale site-specific work in the Formal Garden at Mount Edgcumbe that responds to narratives connected to the house and grounds.
Students worked to a live brief from the team at Mount Edgcumbe, undertaking research into the popular country park from a variety of perspectives, before presenting their initial ideas and developing them further into the pieces you'll see in the exhibition.
There will be numerous individual responses to the brief made in a variety of media located around the Formal Garden including a stacked porcelain sculpture that showcases the significant advances that William Cookworthy made to the refinement of porcelain production in the UK by student Gail Stubbs and a giant blown glass flower with a black bee nestling in the pollen by Charlotte Scurlock to highlight the apiary at Mount Edgcumbe that is conserving the native black bee.
Join us in celebrating their work at the opening on Friday 10 May 3-5pm.
We'd like to thank David Marshall and the gardeners at Mount Edgcumbe for this opportunity.
