Kerrianne Flett

June 13, 2011

Kerrianne is a long way from home but for the past four years she has been subjected to Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone Art College. A couple of weeks ago saw her time come to an end, and what better way to conclude her studies with an owe inspiring degree show!

I have to be honest, Kerrianne is the one student that surprised me. I had no idea what she was planning for her degree show and if I look back to what she was working on in third year, I was expecting to see a paper filled show.

Paper it was not! It was an exhibition that was thought provoking and inspiring!

Kerrianne’s work ‘focusses on the process’. A phrase that rings true in my ears! She looked at an approach that would set her boundaries and focus for her own design process.


Kerrianne worked with sand timers that she had hand crafted. The sand laid out a boundary of time for the sketching process. The sand then turned into a raw product for her outcomes. Castings were made and transformed into final pieces.


The results were rings and bowls that were just so beautiful and raw.


I came away from Kerrianne’s exhibition thinking about the design process. It can be instantaneous! You can give yourself boundaries. Time doesn’t have to a factor. You don’t have to linger over a design for hours/weeks on end. Something amazing can come from a drawing in a minute!

Kerrianne will be exhibiting at New Designers 29th-2nd of July. London is going to love her work! She has already been featured on the Craft Council’s blog!

Kerrianne’s earlier work will also be featured in the new Saloukee book on paper jewellery and will be released in November this year.
