A highlight of this year’s New Designers: Part One, the edition of the graduate show that centres on craft and textile practices, was Katie Alderson‘s Ideology. This materials-led project translates the characteristics of each sign of the zodiac into visual and tactile properties. The coloured glass reflects the sign’s status as fire, air, earth or water, and the details on top portray the nuances of the sign.

Glass, Cork, Silver Plate, Brass, Slate, Stone, Fish Scales
Erratic yet sensitive. This unsteady contradiction forms of the basis of Pisces’ nature – usually torn between two directions. The vessel sympathetically presents water-like hues, matte vs shiny textures, and erratic details.
