Graduate Showcase: Will Huggons - Lighting - Sat 09 Feb 2019 -Wed 27 Mar 2019

Craft shop. Open daily 10am-5.30pm

Our Visual Arts Award winner Will Huggons, is a graduate from Plymouth University's BA Hons 3-D Design course.

Will is a North Devon based designer of contemporary lighting. He has a showcase display of work for sale here at the Guild this Spring!

Will says about his work:

''I love to learn and learn best by exploring material and process. In this case, sculpting sheet metal and using the ocean to produce a unique patina.
By leaving each shade for as long as three weeks, twice each day they are covered by the tide and then revealed, this allows the metal to oxidise. The influences of marine flora, and geographical factors like tidal pools, all have a different effect on the final sculpture, making each one unique.
The biggest step has been letting go of control. The thought of risking a creation that has taken time and care to make is always formidable. However, there is a relief and some excitement when I step back and leave them to the mercy of the ocean. Of course, this is increased tenfold when I rediscover the final pieces a couple of weeks later.
