University of Brighton Faculty of Arts Student magazine article.


Sian Elizabeth Hughes image


This photo is a reflection on not only what I have begun to learn on my Masters degree but also where I have come from. The piece on the left is a Silver object from my BA degree final project, simple, handmade and aesthetically pleasing. The piece on the right is the beginning of my Masters degree, 5 years on, challenging the idea of beauty, exploring unconventional ways of using laser cutting technology and working with plastics. The freedom to push boundaries, exploring new materials and technology and adding deeper meaning to my designs enable a wealth of exciting possibilities. This photo represents the start of a thought-provoking journey.
