Kelly Munro: Maker in Focus

Kelly Munro: Maker in Focus

Kelly Munro, the 2014 winner of Rising Stars award. Kelly graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art and has 1st Class BA (Hons) Jewellery and Silversmithing in 2013. Her unqiue jewellery is inspired by her small hometown north coast of Scotland, well known for its historical fishing industry. She has a particular interest in fishing equipment used in the past and present. This inspiration is reflected in the lobster pots as a starting point for her graduation show work. This has evolved through stages of material exploration and settled at the combination of 'weathering' wood and traditional metal techniques.
technique of intricate saw piercing enables me to create nets and lightweight structures. I aim to shadow the forms of the nets and pots, and loosely interoperate these shapes in my own way. My work aims to portray the rustic look of items found near harbours and tide lines.

Rising Stars 2015

20 March - 11 May
Rising Stars is a platform to view and collect some of the most exciting new crafts by emerging makers from crafts and applied arts programmes across the UK. This curated, selling exhibition will be showcased at the New Ashgate, Farnham, accompanied by professional development and a £500.00 prize.

For many artists and makers who have just completed an MA or BA, they are at a cross roads, where they have a full portfolio of fabulous ideas, but do not have the proven exhibitor track record that most galleries look for. The New Ashgate Gallery offers just the right platform and for many the starting point to an exceptional career
