After moving to London in 2017 to study fine art at Goldsmiths, Camilla Hanney found her way to clay. Her central interest now is in the female body – the meanings attributed to it and the constraints that bind it. The sculptures she creates are an effort to shatter these associations, by symbolically subverting the feminine, dainty, fragile qualities of porcelain.
Owing to her father’s career in the leather industry, Iseabal Hendry grew up with an appreciation for the material, but it wasn’t until her second year at Glasgow School of Art that she considered working with it. Now, as a fully-fledged leatherworker, she transforms offcuts as part of her mission to create a zero-waste business.
